I love the idea of using all the random jars we've accumulated for a fun Christmas craft. These snow globes would be so sweet tucked into garland lining a mantle and I think they'd make a great gift too.
Here's what you need to make Martha-inspired snow globes at home:
Assorted jars (baby food jars work well!)
Animal figurines and miniature trees
Paint the jar lid if desired. Sand the inside of the lid to rough up the surface. Use a water resistant epoxy or glue and adhere the figurine or tree to the inside of the lid. Let the glue dry well.
Fill the jar almost full with the water, a pinch of glitter and glycerin. Add a little more glue to the jar lid threads and screw the lid on tightly, but carefully, so not to dislodge the figurine.
Turn the jar over and watch it snow!
