As a child I loved snow globes. It’s like a little magical place inside of a jar. To this day, I have an admiration for anything glass with something cute or beautiful inside it. And it’s not only the glass and the scene inside. . . if it’s lit, it’s even more magical.
Today I’m going to show you how you can make your very own illuminated snow scene right inside of a mason jar. I have to say that when I thought of this, I thought it was pretty brilliant and I bought some ice cream that day to celebrate. I’ve never seen a tealight used this way in a DIY project. Maybe you have. If you have, don’t let me know about it. It will completely burst my bubble.
Here’s what you need to make your own magical scene inside of a jar:
- Wide mouth mason jar with lid and cover (Kerr brand is the best because one of the sides of the jar is clear)
- Battery-operated tealight
- Button magnet
- Faux snow
- Whatever you’d like to place in your jar (I found the snowman and tree in the Christmas section at Walmart and both were under $1)
