Twinkle Twinkle little snow globe!
This holiday craft was inspired by the snow scenes in mason jars in Anthropologie stores.
They are simple and inexpensive to make.
They make great gifts for teachers, family and friends.
(To add sparkle to your mantel simply add a strand of lights inside of a sheer piece of fabric.)
First you need lots of glitter and snow!
I love setting up the craft in fun and unique ways.
Use mason jars and measuring spoons(anthropologie) to spoon glitter into jars.
You will need mason jars, glitter, snow, spoons,hot glue,mini pine cones, mini snowflakes and mini trees for this activity. You can find the jars at the grocery store/michaels/hobby lobby. Just make sure they are smooth and not patterned, otherwise you will not be able to see the trees through the glass. The mini pinecones, mini trees and glitter were all purchased at Hobby Lobby.
I found beautiful green and blue bottle brush trees at World Market.
First you will need to hot glue the removable lid to the screw top lid. Next hot glue the trees and pine cones to the inside of the lid(as if you were going to screw the lid on and they are hanging upside down).
After your little scene is glued in, take your measuring spoons and add some to your jar. Only fill about 1/4 of the jar with snow and glitter so you can still see your trees inside but they have snow around them.
These took only a few minutes to make and they are so inexpensive to make!
You can also made little bitty jars for special reindeer food to help them fly(glitter).
We have a tradition to make special reindeer food and go out on Christmas Eve in our jammies and sprinkle on the front lawn for Santa’s Reindeer.
This would be such a cute addition to a little girls’ holiday party.
Add the guest’s name to to a pretty tag and you have an easy party favor.
I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful this holiday season.
I would love to hear what you have in store for crafting this holiday season!
