Deborah is a craft enthusiast. She particularly enjoys creating crafts with a special theme.

Jars are easy to find in the produce section of your local grocery store or craft store. Better yet, mason jars commonly store tasty ingredients. Jars can be reused to create DIY projects. These are three crafts that are easy to make and a lot of fun to put together. Plastic jars can be used for these crafts as well.

This little snow globe is relatively easy to make, and a popular DIY jar craft. I decided to craft the little globe when seeing a round shaped jar, but this craft can certainly be made with a regular mason jar.

You will need:

  • Jar (I used a round one)
  • Little Statue
  • Glitter
  • Hot Glue
  • Lid
  • Round Foam (I used gold foam from party scatter)
  • Vegetable Glycerin (optional)

Step 1

Glue a round lid and foam to the inside of the lid. Be sure that it is the right size to fit into lid without interfering with the rim of the jar. The lid needs to be able to be screwed onto the jar.
