I am excited to have Laura from Left On Peninsula Road here today to share an adorable Christmas craft idea… mini snow globe ornaments in a mason jar! It’s like everything cute all wrapped into one fun project! 🙂

Mason jar snow globes are everywhere right now. I’m sure you’ve seen them, big small, all shapes and sizes! Well, I can’t seem to get enough of them, so when I saw inexpensive mini mason spice jars when I was shopping at Target, I just had to put together an ornament version.
Here’s what you need to make your own:
- Mini Mason Jars with handles and lids
- Assorted Miniatures to fit your jar
- White Tile Adhesive
- Faux Snow (optional)
- Thin Colored Ribbon or Trim Ribbon for hanging
- Jingle Bells & Bakers Twine
Start by gathering your supplies and check that your miniatures fit in the tiny mason jar. It might be helpful to have tweezers or needle nose pliers on hand for placing your miniatures. Also, a craft stick or wooden skewer works well for spreading the tile adhesive.
Wash and dry your jar. I also wiped the inside of mine with some rubbing alcohol.
Plan your arrangement before adding tile adhesive to your jar, but don’t get too distracted by how cute the little Christmas miniatures are:)
Add some tile adhesive to the bottom of your jar. Spread around as desired to be the snow. Mine ranged from 1/4-1/2″ deep. Arrange your miniatures in the “snow.” I let it dry overnight with the lid off. (Check your package directions.) Once the snow was dry, I added a couple pinches of loose faux snow to the jar. This is optional, but I had snow left from the Snowy Wreath Shadowbox project I shared here last month.
That’s all there is too it! Make a bunch. Wouldn’t they make a great craft night project?
It certainly wouldn’t take long to put a few of these together for neighbor or hostess gifts! So cute I can hardly stand it! And different miniatures would change the entire look!
