Make: Mason Jar Tree Snowglobes
Thursday, December 20, 2012
I saw these tree globes at the beginning of the season and I thought they were so cute and would make sweet little gifts to those people you don't know what on earth to get them. I also thought there's no way I am paying $28.00 for one when I know I can make that myself! I made these ones for about $10 each which is a splurge because I bought really lovely antique mason jars and trees - I know they could be made for much less. I also bought a giant bag of "snow" because apparently they only sell giant bags of fake snow. But for my two dollars I am fairly certain I can make snow globes every year for the rest of my life, or I can mail you some (seriously I would; though if you think glitter is bad it has nothing on fake snow).
So this is about as easy of a DIY as you can get and that's what I am into, simple diys. It took me all of about 1 minute to make these ones. What you need is a mason jar, glue gun or other glue substance that will hold strong, a bottle brush tree, and some fake snow. And all you do is glue your tree to the lid, add snow and screw on lid. Twenty-eight dollars, hahahaha.
