These Anthropologie mason jar snow globes have set Pinterest afire recently, and they’re amazing:
After hitting several Hobby Lobby stores to find enough trees and some extra fine fake snow, I dug out my hot glue gun and made nine snow globes during a Thursday night TV marathon.
It took some experimenting to find the right amount of snow to use, and a lot of shaking to get it to set just so. After which, my husband came over and vigorously shook one of the snow globes to see how it “worked,” and noted that there was no water. Men.
For the large snow globes, I found it necessary to glue my trees and plastic deer to a few wine corks in order for them not to be buried in snow.
Then, taking some inspiration from bluebirdkisses’ monthly Colors Project mood board, I decided to add some ribbon and bakers twine:
I simply tied the bakers twine in a bow around the small mason jars, and used double-sided tape to attach the ribbon to the large jars above the lids.
I can’t wait to give these out as gifts (and of course, keep some for myself)!
Next year, I think it might be fun to make some little cityscapes using mini versions of things like the Empire State Building and the Eiffel Tower, don’t you?
