mason jar sunday - DIY snow "mason jar" globes!

today's mason jar sunday is SO special!!  i came across these lovelies on pinterest last week and couldn't wait to showcase them on the blog.

without further ado, i give you - mason jar snow scene jar "how-to" from rhonna farrer!
 
Supplies:
Mason Jars & lids (varying sizes)
Spray paint (I chose a light aqua)
Fake snow & glitter
Little treasures to fill the jars (here, I've got bottle brush trees , silver trees & reindeer)
House of 3 Christmas messages printed & cut out

Steps:
1. Gather supplies. Spray paint the lids & tops of your bottles.

2. Fill jar with just a bit of snow & glitter. (on some bottles I even sprayed adhesive inside & then shook glitter inside for a little shimmer. *photos didn't turn out*)
Check out this link on adding water/glycerin too!

3. Right ON the jar lid, hot glue your treasures.  *TIP* Add clear pebbles to make your reindeer and trees to stand tall above the snow.

4. After you've got your little treasures glued onto the lid, put the lid together & turn upside down....& screw the lid on. Turn back upside down, shake the snow & glitter around & you've got your snowscape!
Ideas:
You can add anything inside! Here, I've printed out House of 3 tags & hung it from the top of the jar so it is hanging above the little white bottle brush trees!

This one is filled with a white bird & silver tinsel trees...along with a vintage text flower & leaves i glued on wire so it would stand up behind the bird...it's perched!

Line up your snow scene jars to create a little winter wonderland. I doubled some of the jars to add varying height.

thank you rhonna for your lovely tips!
