Snow Globes

Does it seem too early for a Christmas post? Well, I can assure you, the ladies of my service club are in the thick of Christmas crafts in preparation of our annual Christmas Idea House. I am chairing the Living Room committee this year and I want to share my new favorite craft- 
Winter snow globes.

 Aren't these fun? And so simple to make.

 You can make large scenes from glass canisters,

or tiny scenes from mason jars.

 We've used vintage looking ornaments and embellished with ribbon and a chalkboard tag. 

 Make sure your jars have a wide opening. You can use the jar right side up if it has a cute lid or 
upside down if it has  a flat lid. 
 Glue your ornament to the base with a dab of hot glue.

 Then sprinkle in either faux snow flakes, 

 or rock salt. I add a bit of glitter to the rock salt 
to make it sparkle!

All of these darling snow scenes will be for sale at our big event which supports local charities here in Arizona.
For  more information go to Christmas Idea House.

Have you been working on Christmas crafts yet?

I like to join these parties


  1. Oh my gosh Karee. These are so luscious I just can't wait to replicate them! I just did a makeover of my kitchen that meant clearing out all my old (heavy) glass canisters, replacing them with lightweight retro pastel ones. Yes, I confess I had an ulterior motive in wanting to display my collection of vintage! So last night I lined up all my glass ones, ready to go to the thrift shop....and here's your gorgeous post, changing my mind! I know what my family's getting for Christmas now. I would have assumed snow globes had to be shaken to be enjoyed, but of course they don't. Thankyou. I'd love you to share this at my Five Star Frugal linkup. Would you? Love, Mimi xxx

    1. Hi Mimi, so glad you liked my repurposed glass jars! I'd be thrilled to have you feature me on your linkup. Thanks for the visit and have a great day!

  2. Awww adorable, my girls would love these!

  3. These are so very cute! Thank for joining Home Sweet Home!

  4. Hi Karee,
    Yes it's never too late to start making Christmas Crafts. I love these scenes you have made and so festive.
    I would love to have you join and share this at a blog party I co-host on Monday's called Cooking and Crafting with J & J.
