Maybe you already noticed that I’m creating numerous snow globes for Christmas this year? Today I’m sharing a set of 4 matching ones:
These are so incredibly easy to make! Gather your mason jars, (or any large glas jar you have sitting around the house), add a little epsom salt for snow (thank you for making me an epsom believer, Paula!) and the graphics of your choosing.
To get you started, I have included a printable with 4 cute winter children postcards, ready for you to print and cut:
I printed mine on 170g Canon Matte Photo Paper, left the bottom part uncut, but cut away the background above the children. This can easily be done with most any images, also vintage photos, or even modern photos if you prefer! I then used some of the excess paper, to create little feet (like an H-shape) to each picture, this will make it stand up, and can (mostly) be hidden in the “snow” 🙂 I also used a gold glitter pen to enhance the Christmas greetings on the cards.
This printable sheet of postcards can of course be used for many other Christmas crafts too, maybe they can be included with your Christmas cards this year?
Find your high quality copy in my Christmas download folder, free for your personal use and enjoyment 🙂
I’m sure there’s several different ways of illuminating the snow globes. The 2 alternatives shown here are either little tea light candles in front of the globes (my favorite!) or place the globes in a row, and tuck a few lights from a string of white/transparent Christmas lights into each globe, to light it from the inside. You might even want to do both…lol!
If you want Christmas trees in your snow globes too, I designed several different ones last year, and they are still looking good with this years displays (click on the image below to go to the posts with the trees):
