Are you ready to shake things up for the holidays with this glimmering snow globes filled with your favorite holiday scene. Check out this DIY Christmas mason jar snow globe.
A homemade snow globe is a must for the holidays. I grew up with such classic ones with reindeers and a Santa scene inside. I still have a few of my kids snow globes.
I headed off to Dollar tree and purchased a bunch of mason jars to make a season classic snow globe. This is a fun craft for both adults and kids.
I am super excited to share my snow globe this month with the Thrifty Style Team hosted by the talented Julie from Redhead Can Decorate. Every month we share something that is affordable to make or decorate. This month challenge is something we love from our Christmas past. To me the snow globe was truly a special treat when I was growing up.
History of The SnoW Globe
The snow globe has been around since the 19th century. Interesting enough Austrian Erwin Perzy got the first patent to develop one. He actually was trying to develop a light source but instead he developed a snowy scene in a glass container. Later in the United States Joseph Garaja from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania got his patent and sold the first one with a fish scene. Though the years it became more and more popular for the holidays.
What Jars To Use For Snow Globe
There are many kinds of jars you can use for snow globe. Round one, basic mason jar, and hanging mason jar which can be used as a ornament. There are two lids sizes for mason jars regular and wide mouth. I used a wide mouth size. Mason jar has come in many sizes . I used a 8 ounce size jar.
I think it be so cute to make vintage mason jar snow globe. You can find vintage mason jars usually at flea markets on through eBay.
