Mom, here’s a fun project you and your children could do to add some flair to your Christmas decorations. These snow globes are waterless and easy, and they add a seasonal feel to your home over the holidays. I found an antique blue mason jar at a secondhand store that was perfect for a unique snow globe, but I love clear ones too.
What you need:
- Mason jars with lids
- Artificial snow from craft or garden stores
- Miniature figures of trees or other holiday items
- Simply add a little bit of artificial snow to the bottom of the jar and set a small tree inside!
- For the clear mason jar snow globe, we glued the tree to the lid before screwing it back together again and setting it upside down!
- For a snowy look, add more snow to the jar while it is upright, and then screw the lid and flip it over.
- Get fancy and add cute little animals or add multiple small trees.
See how easy it is with this fun video:
And as a special surprise, my friends at Christian Mommy are giving away two prize packages featuring a snow globe kit and a copy of my latest book Simple Gatherings, just in time for your Christmas and New Year’s get-togethers. Enter below to win.

I’m looking forward to finishing my decluttering so that I can enjoy simple moments with my children, basking in all that Christmas ambience together.:-)
Awesome! Thanks for the idea!
