DIY Snow Globe {For Under $3!}

Hello friends!

I'm so excited for today's post because it has been my favorite Christmas DIY project thus far!

The minute I saw these cute DIY snow globes on Learning, Creating, Living, I jut knew I HAD to give them a try...

and I did!

And I didn't jack em' up!

I know...I'm giving myself way too much credit here. 
These are pretty hard to jack up...unless you drop one and it breaks.

As always, here are the items I used to create my cute little snow globes:

The $3 spent were on the set of miniature trees I purchased for $1 guessed it, the Dollar Tree! And the only other item purchased was the Kosher salt ($1.62). But you can use whatever salt you have on hand, really...white is white.

I put together an easy step by step in photos for ya (man, I spoil you!) which happens to be very Pinterest friendly, so pin away!!

Easy peasy, right?

Please don't skip the thoroughly washing your jar before turning it into a snow globe, unless you're going for a moldy look.

Katelyn from Learning, Creating, Living has a great post on how to easily remove the labels! You can check it out here.

I also painted the lids gold:

Aren't they precious?

Lily just loves them, too! She'll just sit and stare at them! God bless her, she won't touch them because they're glass and doesn't want to break them (like she's already broken a glass ornament). Little does she know these are cheap and of no real monetary value. But that's okay, I don't want to clean up the mess anyway!

Do you like snow globes? 

What is the one Christmas decor item that just screams CHRISTMAS to you? 

Please, do spill.

Well, you've done it again, Selene! These are precious! And I can't tell you how refreshing it is to see such simple step by step instructions. :) I love the gold lids too. That was the perfect touch!

Katelyn said...

Yours came out wonderful! I just love them, they're so fun, right?!

These are so cute Selene. When I see a Christmas Tree sitting tall and pretty next to a lit fireplace, then I now it's officially Christmas.

Mila said...

Mini trees in a jar are my favourite kind of DIY snowglobes :)And kosher salt looks even better than fake snow!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Nichole, thank you! And you're right!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Hi Mila! They really are fun, aren't they?
Hanks for stopping by :)

Very cute Selena, and I love the use of kosher salt. Epsom salt could work as well most likely, but like you say, white is white!

Selene @ Restoration Beauty said...

Thank you, Doreen! I actually looked for Epsom salt but failed so it was Kosher to the rescue!

These are super cute! I keep seeing those mini trees in everyone's projects, but didn't realize you could get them at the dollar store. Thanks for the tip! I'm your newest follower on bloglovin'.

Hi Lindsay! Thank you!!
And yes, the Dollar Tree has a bunch of cute Christmas Village choices and these trees were one of them!
Thanks for following :)
