Create a winter scene in a jar

Posted by Jennifer G. from Toronto, Ontario, Canada • Published See Jennifer G.'s 3 projects »


You Will Need

  • Step 1

    Clean an antique preserves jar with soap and warm water, let dry.

  • Step 2

    Scoop up the Snow-Tex 'snow' (Found at Michael's) with a small paint brush and build a mountain of snow on the inside of the jar lid.  Snow-Tex is has creamy texture that dries permanently hard in 2 hours; longer for thicker applications.

  • Step 3

    Sprinkle white Martha Stewart tinsel sparkles to the snow surface.

  • Step 4

    Cut the wood base off of the sisal tree (found at Michael's) and stick tree into snow.  You can add extra snow to the tree if needed, by dapping Snow-Tex to the tree with your brush.  

  • Step 5

    Take a tiny red bird (found at Michael's) and glue to tree using a hot glue gun.

  • Step 6

    To make the banner, use antique Christmas cards found at your local flea market and cut out a Christmas greeting into a banner shape.  Carefully curve the banner with your fingers so that the banner will hug the tree.  

  • Step 7

    Glue the banner to the tree using a hot glue gun. 

  • Step 8

    Add a bit of Snow-Tex to the top of banner to enhance the snowy winter scene.

  • Step 9

    Let the lid dry on its own over night.  

  • Step 10

    Screw the jar upside down into the lid and behold your winter wonderland!
