If you've been to Anthropologie lately (one of my favorite stores ever), then you may have seen their Christmas mason jar snow globes. They are adorable with little miniature christmas trees and snow. The price however is $38! Now, it didn't really surprise me considering it is Anthropologie, but still...I did my version of the project for under $14...and that was with three jars! Thank goodness for DIY!
- Mason Jar (these are only about $1.99 if you buy them individually and even cheaper if you get a whole case)
- Faux snow (from Michael's)
- Small pine cones (about 5 per jar). I also bought these from Michael's which were about $2.99 for a bag and included some silver painted ones which are really pretty with the snow. If you can find some small pine cones around your neighborhood, even better!
- Open the mason jar and pour a little bit of the snow in.
- Put in 2 to 3 pine cones, then a little bit more snow, 2 more pine cones and a little more snow.
- Put the lid back on the jar, flip the jar over so that it's upside down. And enjoy...
This project is great for centerpieces, on mantels or outside. I love how versatile they are. They also look amazing in candle light which highlights the silver cones and the snow. It gives a very wintry and woodsy ambiance.
I hope these DIY snow globes brighten up your holiday season!
