Today we are 10 days away from Christmas & it’s seriously been in the 60’s here in Michigan. I am NOT complaining at all, but I am going to say being in Michigan with no snow this close to Christmas feels odd & not as much like Christmas as it usually does. Does that make sense? So, I decided to bring my own snow to Michigan & do a little Christmas DIY project. I actually periscoped the other night when I was making these. If you ever want to see me & our home live for sure find me on Persiscope under Liz Marie Blog. For this DIY project I wanted to use some items that I already had at the house so I came up with these DIY snow globe jars to display my vintage car ornaments…
These guys were so hard to take photos of because of the glare of the glass & I am no pro blogger, but you get the idea. I mean it’s cute car ornaments in a jar. How cute right? I had these jars from all over the place like Target, Walmart, & Home Goods. You can find these glass jars just about anywhere. I had this faux snow from Hobby lobby, the Christmas trees from Michaels, & the lovely car ornaments are from Sew A Fine Seam [here] & that car on the far right is actually from Target. I simply first started by turning on some Christmas music, this step is a must! Once your Christmas music is playing, you start putting snow in the bottom of the jars & then layering the trees on top as you please. I then placed one car in each jar. I mean, you can’t get easier. These jars would look great with more ornaments inside, little houses, woodland creatures, & more. These snow globe jars would be great styled on a mantel, on an entryway table, styled on a bookshelf, & more. I styled ours in our kitchen, but the possibilities are really endless.
This little Christmas craft is a great way to bring holiday cheer to your home in a big way quickly, easily, & for little money if you use what you already have. & if you are anything like me you can make these while you wait for the snow to come. This would also be one of those DIY projects you can involve the kids on which is a fun way to hang out together while decorating the house for Christmas. Except keeping a car in a jar to a child might seem like the dumbest thing to them, like why aren’t we playing with these cars? They are smart little buggers.
