Home-Made Snow Globes

Hey everyone! As promised, I'm going to explain to you how to make those adorable anthropologie knock-off snow globes. I have seen this done a zillion times and had to have them myself. I wanted mine to be very simple. I took several blue vintage Ball mason jars, decorated a miniature tree (from the local craft store) glued it to the lid and threw some fake snow in the jar. Easy Peasy. You can put anything you want in these. I also made one with fake greenery and white pearly berries. You could get really detailed and create a whole Christmas scene if you wanted. Another cute idea would be to put a picture in there or small ornaments. A miniature one can be made inside a salt shaker from the dollar store. To flock your mini tree, spray hairspray on the tree, than sprinkle sugar over it. Here's what I did in less than 15 minutes. Like I said I wanted a very simple look. Maybe next year if I had more time I will make a more elaborate one.
I love the icy blue color of the vintage mason jars.
I also adore the way these pictures look old, you can download the Hipstamatic IPhone app to get this look for you pictures.

I hope you are all having a very lovely week!

  1. The reason you are brilliant in what you do is not the cool app that makes the photo look old, but how you put the snow globes on the candleholders...never seen that before. You can take an old idea and make it sparkle and shine! That is a gift! Where do you get your vintage mason jars? And let me clarify there is no liquid in these snow globes?
