If you’re looking for some affordable and simple Christmas and/or winter decorations, sparklyblonde1 has some fantastic DIY inspiration that involves a lot of items you can find around your home and your local dollar store. What is she putting together? I snowy seasonal scene in a jar! Gather your items and follow along to make your own beautiful snowscape that will add some sparkle and charm to your holiday decorating!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Glass containers of your choice — You can use small fish bowls, plates, goblets, candle holders, jars and more. It’s completely up to you!
- Small decorations of your choice — Are snowmen your thing? How about tiny tinsel trees? Or maybe flying reindeer? Use whatever brings your own holiday theme to life.
- Fake snow — It can be tiny round foam beats, sparkly shredded cellophane, white shredded paper, or a package of white confetti-like snow in a bag.
- Battery operated Christmas lights — This is what will make your decor shine and set the mood of the holiday season aglow.
Whichever items you choose, you will need to make sure they are the right size to fit into your chosen glass container, and that they’re proportionate with each other. You wouldn’t want a giant reindeer to step on your tiny evergreens after all! This project is also a way to get a new perspective of your miniature holiday village and accessory pieces. Just picture a glass fishbowl full of snow, with a little glowing Victorian home set neatly among a backdrop of wintery pines and mini animals sneaking out into an open field. Stunning!
Follow along with the video above to put together a few of these festive glass jars for your holiday gathering, or to enjoy with your friends and family during the holiday season.
