DIY Mason Jar Sugar Snow Globe – Create A Winter Wonderland With Forest Animals & Toy Car Figurines

Hello Friends! I have the loveliest Winter Wonderland craft for you all today. We are expecting snow tonight (but who am I kidding- it won’t stick around long here in the south!) and I am in a merry mood tonight. So I thought it would be the perfect time to share my DIY mason jar sugar snow globes with you all! So here’s how to create a snowy forest winterscape with some mason jars, and toy cars & animals!

The kids and I did this project together. We used empty jars from around the house. Nothing fancy. (Hello Prego & Applesauce Jars!)

The best part about this was the memories we made together. There was lots of sugar spilled… but who cares.

They had a blast! And it doesn’t hurt that their hands are a lot smaller than mine… which made assembly much faster! Haha!

I got the cutest little bottle brush trees & forest animals from amazon (both links are at the bottom of the post!)

We did a short video to show you how easy it was! So watch below.

 

See! I told you it was simple.

A couple of tips:

-If you don’t have a little helper with small hands, use a spoon or fork to move objects around.

-If your trees/figurines are toppling, add more sugar and twist/push them deeper into the “snow.”

-Use what you have on hand! The only thing I purchased for this was the animals & trees.

-I’ve seen people use epsom salt, flour, glitter, fluff, etc. for the snow. I like sugar because it kinda gets lumpy & it’s so cheap (and again, what I had on hand at the time.)

-I like the continuous slope of rolling hills we have going on with our row of DIY snow globes. So I reccomend doing different amounts of “snow” and swishing your jar back and forth for a hill look.

Part of me went OCD when my littles would add 10 trees in a bottle… but then I took a step back (totally intending to “adjust” once they weren’t looking) and realized it looked adorable as is. The more objects the merrier in these little snow globes!

They give off a cozy, whimsical, vintage vibe above our fireplace.

I’d been wanting to do these jars for like 5 years… but I think I had it in my head that the jars had to be turned upside down (with the figures glued to the lid) to look right.

Sometimes I can be a little ridiculous about how I envision things…  how it was “supposed to look” kept me from rolling with the punches and having a winter wonderland of homemade snow globes all these years. I’m so glad that I just finally tried it this way.
