DIY Snow Globes

This beautiful DIY Snow Globe tutorial is easy to follow and a fun activity for children! DIY Snow Globe Mason jars are great Christmas gifts and decor.
When I was growing up, and I had a little snow globe collection.
There weren't a ton in it, but I loved each and every one of them. I think I still have most of them stored away somewhere, but every time I see one at the store, I can't help but shake it and turn the music on (yes, I'm that annoying person who turns on things that make noise at the store).
I still enjoy them to this day, so I thought it would be fun to make a homemade snow globe! I figured it wouldn't be too difficult.
I saw some different tutorials on Pinterest, though most of them said to use glycerin or baby oil. I tried this method, and I found that the glitter and buffalo snow that I used clumped together and just didn't look very good.
So I tried water, which worked fine, but in the end, I felt like the best results came from using distilled water.
I used these quilted mason jars from Paper Mart that they sent me, which worked pretty well. I think they were a pretty good size, and they are pretty! Though you may want to consider using mason jars without a pattern so you can see things better. Paper Mart has so many great options for crafts like this.
Jack and I really loved making these together. He is constantly begging me to do another one! We found some cute little trees at Jo-Ann Fabric, and they worked out well. However, you can really use anything you want. The sky is the limit!
