Seeing as how I'm obsessed with mason jars, it's really no surprise that my project for week 5 of Kim's Dare to DIY Challenge: Dare to Decorate is a DIY Mason Jar Snowglobe. Have you seen these things floating around Pinterest? Apparently Anthropologie is selling these babies for a pretty penny. However, I'm confused, because don't snow globes have water in them? Anthro's version doesn't. Don't get me wrong, they're adorable as is. Check out the ones my friend Bethany made. Yep, adorbs. But I wanted water in mine to get the full snow globe effect. So I glued my little tree to the lid of the mason jar, shook a little faux snow and glitter in there, then filled it to the very tippy top with water. I screwed that bad boy shut.
Then shook the crap out of it.
A lot of the snow stayed at the top of the jar so maybe I used too much? Who knows. And who knows about the longevity of this thing. I'm crossing my fingers it doesn't leak or anything. But as usual, I really don't care. It looks pretty right now and my need for instant glittery gratification has been satisfied.
Now go check out the rest of the holiday pretties...
p.s. Thanks to all of you that went and offered your help for Operation WANA. You guys are amazing.
