Christmas Snow Jars

Snow scene jars are everywhere on my Pinterest feed at the moment - and rightly so, as they look amazing! I think they look particularly pretty on mantelpieces and side tables, as well as an eye-catching centrepiece on your Christmas table.

The trick is to create a 'scene' inside them - similar to a snow globe but without the water...

MY ATTEMPT:

SHOPPING LIST

  • Display jars (I found mine at a bargain price from Homesense)
  • Epsom salt
  • Christmas decorations / models to make a village scene:
    - My house bauble and mini trees are from Sass & Belle
    - My glitter animals are the ones I made to top my Christmas cake with last year (love a good recycle!)

HOW-TO

1. Your epsom salt is your snow! Add to the bottom of your jar/s first.

2. Add your mini village!

That's it!

TOP TIPS

  • Keep out the way of children and pets - mantelpieces high up work well. Jars with lids are also a good call
  • Add fairy lights around them for extra sparkle (you could hide the battery pack or cables with green garlands)
  • Mini woodland creatures and trees create a particularly effective snow 'scene'
  • I would make two in case you want to add them to a mantelpiece or side table - keeping the look balanced.

VERDICT

Easy, pretty, affordable to make: highly recommended!
