24 days of Christmas: snowscapes in a jar 

My grandparents and my husband’s grandparents both used to can vegetables from their gardens.  

About a year ago, both my father in law and my grandparents gave me some gallon jars, as I needed them to create glass pantry canisters. 

I knew I wanted to use them for Christmas decorating somehow, butting was out of ideas. I spotted this cute little light up house at Jo Ann Fabric and I knew immediately what I wanted to do. 

I poured some Epsom salt into the jar and popped a bottle brush tree into the salt. Alas, my cute little house wouldn’t fit into the mouth of the jar!! Grrr!

Not to worry.  I spotted this handsome fellow at Tractor Supply. 

Doesn’t he look right at home in my snow jar?

As for the cute little house?

It found a home in our ice bucket.  

These snowscape jars are simple and fun to make.  I truly enjoyed making these tiny worlds in a jar.
