DIY Snow Globes and Christmas Tree Cars.

Last week I was decorating my mantel for the holidays and came across some vintage mason jars in the basement. I knew I wanted to include them in my decor so got out some supplies and created my own little "snow globes".

I'm obsessed with bottle brush trees. I had a whole bag of green ones that I picked up at Canadian Tire last year (I've also seen them at Michael's for an outrageous amount of money. Even with a 40% off coupon, it's robbery). I also had a couple of little white ones from Walmart. It was like a forest in my dining room and I couldn't resist taking a few photos.

I just used a little tape to stick the trees to the lids. You could use hot glue but I wanted to be able to reuse the jars. Then, I added some "snow" to the jars, screwed on the lids and flipped them over. Voila! Winter wonderland!

I had a few short mason jars and decided to have a little fun with some toy cars. Please ignore the fact that this one is a convertible.. in the winter.  How cute is the minty green!

Taking the tree home from the lot! Aren't they sweet. I had planned to do this as a Christmas craft with my class but not all the cars with fit in the jars properly. I'll have to get my thinking cap on for something else!

I think it's pretty sweet just on its own too. I might have to make some more. You should make some too. So easy!

  1. I love these! So cute! For the last few years I've wanted to make these but just have never gotten around to it!

  2. These are my favorite! They're literally on my to-do list today. Fun to see your car version...love it!

  3. Mason jar snowglobes are my fave. Your forest turned out so cute. I'll be making some with Chloe this week!

  4. so so so sweet. Love those little car's with the trees on top!!! I wonder if I could do this!! You're awesome!

  5. Cute! I was thinking of doing the same craft- but am feeling too lazy to find enough mason jars and trees, so its the classic handprint snowman art instead!

  6. So cute! I've always loved the look of the little bottle-brush trees in DIY snow globes - might just have to make some for myself one of these days :) xo

  7. bahahah! Love the car + tree! So cute!
