Create a stylish farmhouse-style ornament out of a Dollar Tree snow globe ornament with this easy DIY mason jar snow globe ornament tutorial!

One of my most popular Christmas/Winter DIY tutorials on the blog is my mason jar snow globe – made with a real, glass mason jar.

Well, when I was walking through Dollar Tree the other day and saw their cute, plastic mason jar ornaments, I thought, “I’ve got to make those snow globes in an ornament form!”

Thus, these DIY mason jar snow globe ornaments were created.


These ornaments add some stylish, classical farmhouse style to your tree and only cost a few dollars to make!

Have fun creating, friends.

How to Make a Mason Jar Snow Globe Ornament

STEP 1: Glue on Trees

Start by hot-gluing your mini-trees to the inside of the mason jar ornament’s lid.

I put two trees in mine at varying heights, but you could also put just one large tree in there.

STEP 2: Add Glitter

Next, pour a decent amount of glitter into the jar part of the ornament.

I held my jar at an angle so the glitter didn’t fall out of the ornament top.


STEP 3: Reassemble and Tie on Jute Loop

Lastly, put your mason jar back together, turn it right-side up, and tie a loop of jute to the top for hanging!

And that’s it! Pretty easy, huh? And SO CUTE.

I love the sparkle of the glitter with the lights on the tree.

I hope you enjoy making some of these simple, snow globe ornaments!

As promised, here are the printable instructions:

  1. Hi Dawn – I apologize for my late reply! I typically get my supplies at the dollar store, craft store or online. I’ve shopped more online in the last year than every before, but it does require some planning ahead to account for shipping time. Which is why I always prefer to shop in-store so I can have them right then. Hope this helps!

  2. I love to make stuff with Mason jars. you have some great and beautiful ideas. thank you for the inspiration. I usually make Mason jar snow globes with liquid in them to be able to shake and watch the “snow ” fall down. I usually make them for Christmas. But recently I got very sick and had to have several surgeries and was lifelined by helicopter to another hospital where I had more surgeries and now have a g tube. Well this all has been very costly with all the medical and meds. I cannot afford to make them this year. I was wondering where do you get your supplies? I have several disappointed family and friends. I really need to make 7 of them for the people that means the most to me. I also make them with photos.
