Aren’t these AH-dorable!?
I mean…seriously cute.
I saw these babies at Anthroplogie the other day and I kid you not, I stood there in front of the display in awe of how very happy something so simple could make me.
Here are the Anthro Mason Jar Snow Globes!
(The Anthro version: $25.00-$35.00!)
Here’s my version! I did 12 for under $25.00!
Simple, simple, simple.
You don’t need a tutorial but I’ll tell ya how I did mine anyhoo…
This is all you need:
*Large size Ball Jars
(I may start collecting old ones throughout the year to make more of these next Christmas-old jars would look soooo pretty!)
*Fake snow! (I got a little bag at Target and barely used any-find someone and share-share-share!)
*Hot glue gun
*Tiny “pretties”-snowy trees, itty bitty snow men, small ornaments…
Take the top apart and glue your “pretties” to the inside of the lid!
(I used hot glue to help with a few difficult little things!)
Some of my tiny things were so small that I glued layers of cardboard on the bottoms to give them a lift!
Once I started, I couldn’t stop! I used the cute things I’d bought for this project…
Then moved on from the tiny trees and snowmen to old ornaments that have sweet memories…
…this jar holds a little angel ornament that my mama brought to my daughter Stephie when she had to spend the night in the hospital – Stephie was only five years old and she and I had spent a sleepless night in the children’s hospital in Atlanta. Mama blew in before 5:00 in the morning with a cup of hot coffee for me and for Stephie she had wrapped a box of Chistmas angels to hang on her tree.
I love that memory, it’s so like Mama.
This little pink victorian house was one of bunches of pink-house ornaments I bought 23 years ago when we moved into this house. I still hang these on my girly tree in the dinning room.
I found a bunch of these old (plastic) Santas at a little antique store a few years ago, they reminded me of my childhood. Just looking at that jolly ole elf takes me back…
Wouldn’t these mason jars be great little memory keepers? Every jar could come with a story…sigh.
Or you could just go to Dollar Tree and get some tiny trees…
And little snow men…
I’m thinking these would make great party favors!
Or put in a favorite childhood ornament and give one to your grown up kid to help them keep their memory!
Don’t ‘cha love it when something so simple makes you smile?
~ Have a simply wonderful day my friends~
