Nostalgic Snow Globes!



Christmas and Winter Snowglobes.
They just go together.
 
This DIY version of a nostalgic snowglobe
is just about as simple as it gets--involves upcycling,
easy for children to help with,
and can be done in less than 15 minutes!
The results are awesome.  
Just looking at it makes me feel happy and winter-y.

So...save your old jars--glass or plastic..
and consider making a few of these to display or give away.
Can't wait to see your version!
I used an old olive jar and Tostitos Nacho cheese jars--these are the perfect size! 
{So now you have a great excuse for eating a jar of cheese sauce! haha} 
 bottle brush tree and snow flakes.
{Walmart has these trees for 79 cents}
 Hot glue tree to the inside of the lid.
{spray paint the lid white first}
 add a pinch or two of the snow. 
{a little goes a long way}

Simply Adorable!
Fill with water and screw lid on tightly.
Shake and enjoy!

 Group a bunch together for more impact.
 What teacher wouldn't love one on their desk?
finish and embellish with a small tag
{I used very old music sheets stamped with a red fleur and tied with red hemp}
Display as a centerpiece on an old silver tray!
Perfect vintage!

  1. Hi Aimee, hopped over from Cozy Little House. Happy to be a new follower. These snow globes would be such a fun projects for my grands. I have made the little snow scenes in the salt shakers, but these are ones that kids would love. I have a link party, Share Your Cup Thursday. It's all about sharing the things that make you happy. I'd love if you shared this week.
