Do-It-Yourself Holiday Crafts: Jar Snowglobes

It seems that every year, once Thanksgiving dinner has been cleared away and the first Christmas songs start their radio broadcasts, we all go into a holiday frenzy. Between shopping, cooking, party planning, and more, sometimes we need to stop and take a deep breath. A great way to unwind as the holidays approach is with an inexpensive, DIY craft project. The following instructographic details a fun way to turn old jars of any size into snow globes your whole family will love. This can also be a great project for kids who are home and bored on a snow day, or just want to help decorate. While adult supervision is definitely required, your kids can have a wonderful time selected jars, picking out figurines, and choosing the perfect ribbons to add a pop of color to their DIY snow globes.

And of course, once this year’s holiday season concludes, these snow globes will last through the years and become a fun and meaningful part of your family’s holiday décor. Follow the steps outlined below to create a winter wonderland and display your jars on a mantel, windowsill, as a table centerpiece, or anything else you can think of.

Not to mention, this project is incredibly budget-friendly and requires just a few items you can pick up at any craft store. So, in a season that’s often overshadowed by consumption and material possessions, this DIY project is the perfect way to reconnect with family over crafts, upcycle your old jars, and just have fun making something festive.

Thanks to eCollegeFinder.com for this festive instructographic on building your own snow globe at home.
