Christmas Snow Scene in a Jar

Christmas Snow Scene in a Jar

Don’t you just love a snow globe? I’m loving seeing all the creative and fun ways to create a similar snow scene using jars. Today I’m joining Cindy at County Road 407 for a Pinterest inspiration Challenge!

Here’s how to make a couple different Christmas Snow Scene in a Jar. First, using thrift store and dollar store items and then using vintage mason jars and a cake stand. In addition, each of the participants are making their own Christmas Snow Scene in a Jar based on this inspiration pin from Katrin at Northern Feeling. Be sure to check out the other creative ideas being shared at the end of this post.

My Christmas Snow Scene in a Jar

First, the original plan was use vintage mason jars for the Christmas Snow Scene. But in the meantime, I found a really perfect jar at the thrift store for only $2.00.

So, long story short, I couldn’t resist sharing both versions for this Pinterest challenge.

The Thrift Store Version

Because the jar was so inexpensive, I thought it would be fun to keep the whole project budget friendly. As a result, I used Dollar Tree items to make this Christmas Snow Scene.

The cute owl ornament and the two white bottle brush trees only cost an $2.00 at The Dollar Tree and so far the total investment is only $4.00.

Here you see a thrifted white ironstone plate, which was a perfect fit for the glass jar.

To add a touch of sparkle, battery operated twinkle lights, left over from last Christmas, were wrapped around the jar. In order to avoid an additional purchase, poly fill was shredded to fill the bottom of the jar.

Here is an overhead view of the cute little owl and trees in the thrift store jar.

Vintage Mason Jar Christmas Snow Scene

Now, back to my original plan, which was to use my collection of old mason canning jars to create a Vintage Jar Snow Scene.

In addition, a metal cake stand was used to corral the jars and create a village snow scene. You can purchase faux snow, however I used poly fill, which I had on hand.

To brighten up the display, some battery operated twinkle lights were added to the shredded poly fill snow.

Just fill each jar with a little poly fill and add your desired Christmas Decor. I used a combination of ceramic and bottle brush trees from Vintage Cottage 150 and The Dollar Tree! In addition, some rosemary herb stems were added to the faux snow for a little fresh scent and a touch of color.

Once the mason jars were in place, a few more ceramic and bottle brush trees were added to the cake stand.

In addition, these cute ceramic village pieces fill in the space underneath the cake stand and you can find these pieces Target.

Some additional faux snow may be added to the village as the calendar moves closer to Christmas Day!

Rachel - Once again, two sips of coffee and then into wonderland of Rachel with bottle brush trees and redo rather than need to buy. You are an encouragement to the young and not so young. The market wants you to fall in love with all the new and purchase purchase purchase and not everyone can or should do that. You are a trainer in ways to work outside the box and everything looks unique and is fabulous. My very best to you and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
