Mason Jar DIY Snow Globes

DIY Snow Globes www.laurabraydesigns.comI saw some mason jar, faux snow globes in a shop the other day. It was a jar, glitter, and some faux trees and deer. No liquid. They were marked at $28 each! Yikes! Too rich for my blood. So I came home, washed out a pickle jar and made my own. I love how the came out. I kind of like the idea of not using liquid to make snow globes. I mean, really, how many times do you actually shake your snow globes? And you can still shake these and the glitter flies around. This just seems to be a much better easier (and neater) way to do it. DIY Snow Globes
