My sister-in-law tried to hedge things a bit by saying, “it might not be very good…” as I unwrapped our gift but I cut her off with a happy squeal. “Look the boys made us a mason jar snow globe! I love it!”
Because I do.
With a little adult help, your kids can make waterless mason jar snow globes too. They make fabulous gifts and even better Christmas decorations!
Handmade Christmas Décor: Mason Jar Snow Globes
Blue pint size Ball Mason jar
Artificial snow scatter flakes (Amazon sells them here)
1. Use the pen and the metal mason jar lid to trace a circle on the Styrofoam.
2. Young children may need help from an adult with this step. Carefully cut the circle out of the Styrofoam using a serrated knife, such as a bread knife. I think serrated knives make cutting Styrofoam a bit easier but use your best judgment especially if you are helping the kiddos do this project.
3. Glue the figure(s) to the top of the Styrofoam base. I don’t know what type of the glue my nephews used for this project is a kid friendly school glue or a Mom used hot glue for us.
Dogs wearing Santa hats. How perfect! Do they know us or what?
Let it snow!
6. Wrap it up and listen to your aunt and uncle squeal with delight when they open your homemade Christmas gift.
7. Display proudly!
