FULL DIY Snow Globe Tutorial
Every December, I struggle with my decor just a bit.
See, I want to decorate for Christmas, but you don’t get to enjoy it for very long. You get much more reward for your decorating efforts when you decorate for winter, instead of just Christmas.
That’s exactly what this craft today is all about. You can display this little snow scene glass jar with your Christmas decorations. Then after December 25th, you can still enjoy it through the rest of the winter.
If you love simple and inexpensive seasonal decor as much as I do, you’ll love these budget-friendly winter pillow covers and easy DIY boxwood wreaths. They’re all perfect for changing up your decor after Christmas has passed, just like this snow globe craft.

Supplies needed for this Snow Globe Craft
- A small glass jar with a lid
- Scrap card stock or cardboard
- Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks
- Fiber fill (pillow stuffing) or other fake snow material
- A snip of green garland
- Mini winter figurines (like deer) – found in any craft store
Directions: how to make a DIY Snow Globes – Mini glass jar snow globe
Cut a small circle of cardboard, just smaller than the opening of the jar. This will serve as the base of your snow globe scene.
Hot glue the plastic deer to the cardboard base. You could also use a snowman or little red truck. So cute!
Trim a small sprig of faux garland (I buy my garland at the dollar store!). Trim the top, so that your spring of garland is in the shape of a tall triangle, resembling an evergreen tree.
Hot glue the bottom of this garland piece to your cardboard base. You will need to hold or prop the garland piece in place while the hot glue dries.
Add a little bit of batting around the base of the figurines and garland. Flatten it with the blunt end of a pair of scissors, so that the figurines aren’t half “buried” in snow.
Line the bottom of the glass jar with a thin layer of batting. Then gently slide the winter scene and cardboard base into the glass jar. Use the blunt end of a pair of scissors again to poke down the batting until the winter scene is level and your snow looks nice.
Close the jar. Then display and enjoy!
I chose to display my little glass jar snow globe on top of a candle stick along with my other Christmas mantel décor items. I think it’s fun to use something other than candles on candle sticks. You should give it a try!
