A fun craft to do with the whole family in December is a great way to spend time together. If it’s a craft that will double as a Christmas decoration, so much the better! Gather together your family and get ready to create a homemade snow globe that work perfectly in your home or as a gift to your neighbors.

If you have any mason jars this would work, but I found this instruction guide from craftaholicsanonymous that uses baby food jars. How fun would it be to make these?  


  • empty baby food jars {Stage 2 size is the cutest, in my opinion, but all sizes work just fine!}
  • mini fake trees
  • Goo Gone
  • Glycerin {I found it at the Walmart pharmacy}
  • Glass & Bead glue OR Epoxy
  • Glitter {colored chunkier glitter works best. Don’t use clear or fine glitter}
  • Gold spray paint
  • distilled water
  1. Remove the labels off the jars and clean off the glue with Goo Gone.
  2. Spray paint the lids gold {or desired color}.
  3. Put a little glue on both the inside of the lid and the bottom of the fake tree. Allow to dry for 1-2 minutes and then press the tree onto the lid. Allow to dry for 24 hours.
  4. Add about 1 teaspoon of glitter into each jar
  5. Fill with distilled water and add 5 drops of Glycerin. {5 drops seemed to work the best.} Screw the lid {with the tree} onto the top and you’ve got yourself the cutest mini snow globe ever!

    And that is how you make Baby Food Jar Snow Globes!

Give it a shot and let me know how your homemade snow globes turn out!
