My mom has a LARGE BOX of Ball jars (leftover from my sister's wedding) sitting in the closet.
So, I decided to turn them into INEXPENSIVE Christmas presents:
Homemade Snow Globes
1.) Start with various sizes of Ball jars.
Big, medium, small.
They cost between $2.50-1.50 (each) at Hobby Lobby.
2.) Buy a bag of FAKE snowflakes - pine cones - and some miniature trees.
I found the snow at Target.
Trees and pine cones at Hobby Lobby.
3.) Glue the object (using a hot glue gun) to the base of the jar lid.
4.) Put a spoonful of snow inside the jar - and screw on the lid!
5.) I tied some ribbon around the lid... and glued a red berry in the middle.
(You can find BAGS of these red berries at Hobby Lobby.)
6.) You can also put your favorite Christmas tree ornament inside the jar!
I found this pretty blue heart.
(Glued an acorn to the top of the jar.)
"Together or apart - always in my heart!"
7.) I glued these BLUE, sparkly snowflakes to the tops of a few jars.
(Once again, using the hot glue gun.)
Look how cute they are!!!
Super inexpensive too!
Each one only cost me about $2.50 (TOTAL!)
These would be perfect presents to give to your cousins, aunts/uncles, friends or co-workers.
