DIY Snow Globes are no stranger to Pinterest or the blog world, but they do not get old! They are simple, whimsical, and inexpensive additions to any Christmas decor in your living area, your kitchen, or even a child’s room! With the wide variety of ornaments and decor available right now in stores…and in your own Christmas boxes…these are sure to become a favorite for the season!
The possibilities are endless and you can fill glass jars or any glass container with whatever items you love. I put together a few different looks to show you here…
These first ones hold ceramic figurines from my Christmas village and bottle-brush trees. See photo above.
This glass apothecary jar shown below is from Decor Steals. Love it! It can be filled with just about anything! I bought mine HERE. (So sad to tell you they are sold out at this link. I’ve contacted them to find out if there will be more). The jar is resting on a cake stand.
To make white trees, I simply bleached green bottle-brush trees. Soaked them in hot water and bleach (about 3-1 ratio) until they were no longer green, rinsed them thoroughly, allowed them to dry, and sprinkled them with glitter.
The church is an ornament that I found at Target in their Christmas section this year. They have an entire section with glitter houses and matching pieces that are precious.
The table and shutters moved from the den to our kitchen to accommodate our Christmas tree. The snow globes, Mod Podge Christmas Tree Canvas, and a Burlap Rag Wreath pull it all together for a cozy little nook!
