I want you to have this information for this weekend, just in case you were need of one last hand-made gift.  I recently made these nifty DIY Snow-globe mason jars for our Bunco group, neighbors, friends and naturally my hairstylist.

Jars are one of the many materials that I enjoy working with. That dear Mother of mine canned every Fall and I have the best memories of colorful fruits and vegetables filling those jars. I haven't canned much myself but, I  am always on the look out for ways to make creative use out of  jars.

Truly, these Snow-globe mason jars are pretty cute and once you make one, you will want to make more.  They are decorative, useful, reusable, handy and perfectly handmade. Holidays and Handmade sort of go together. Oh and I am not stopping with Christmas, I'll be sharing some creative Valentine Jars too and Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

I filled my Mason jars with mints and chocolate kisses; however, the sky is limit, think about what treats you’d like to receive. How about candy canes, cookies, hot chocolate mix, or a brownie mix, let your imagination be your guide.

(Crafting Tip)
Before you purchase any items take inventory of what you already have in your pantry, cupboards and craft stash.  I know I am always pleasantly surprised at what I have saved throughout the years. Also please remember that this is your craft so customize it to your liking.
All of my tutorials are simply a pattern for you to work off, let your creativity shine! 😊

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING A HOME-STYLED SNOW-GLOBE MASON JAR
1.       Remove the lid and ring from the mason jar.
2.       Hot glue or use (E6000 glue for a stronger hold) to glue the lid to the inner side of the ring.
3.       If desired, paint the top of the lid in the color of your choice.
4.       After paint has dried-or even if you opt out of painting the lid mix modgpodge and glitter together and apply to the top of the lid. Let dry.
5.       Glue miniature pompoms around the edge of the rim.
6.       Glue miniature Christmas Tree ornaments to the base of the lid
7.       Open up a clear plastic ornament (there will be two pieces.) Glue around the one of the edges or glue the edge of the mason jar lid. (both methods work.)
8.       Place it on top of the mason jar and hold firmly in place until it is set.
9.       There is a small opening on the side of the ornaments, this where I added a homemade pompom and jingle bell.

  1. Hi Jemma, Couldn't open the video but boy, these are cute and I'm going to remember this one for next year. This late TG really threw me off my game!

    I realized I didn't have your current address to send a Christmas card this year but shoot it to me when you have a chance. I'm so glad you are blogging again. Meanwhile, I hope you and your family have an absolutely splendid Christmas in your new home and I look forward to so much more in the new year!

  2. Oh Jemma, this is the most creative idea ever. These jars are so cute. I will have to pass your post along to the girls, as they love mason jars and putting their own goodies in them. I love hearing about your mother and all the wonderful things she used to do for her family. I especially like the snow globes, as I collect them. And the gold ribbon you added is a nice touch. I think putting tea bags or hot chocolate in there is also a fun idea. And who doesn't love chocolate Kisses? The red crinkle paper made me smile, as Jess added this to all her Christmas gifts this year. This is really a great idea, and thanks for sharing. Your creative hands always make the most beautiful things for your loved ones.

    I wish you a Merry Christmas, and thank you for your friendship all these years. : )
