Great little project and I have seen many variations of it using baby food jars for a mini snow globe. Another variation is keeping the lid loose in order to insert some battery operated lights, or small battery flicker candle tea light. You can also mix the 'snow' with white or silver glitter, or even small star confetti which would give it a real winter wonderland look!

What great ideas! I was thinking also, that you could put figurines in it like Santa Claus or some tiny reindeer either with the trees or instead of the trees. I like the idea of glitter in the "snow" and a battery operated tealight hidden somewhere in it. There are a lot of ways to do it!

I have a ton of Mason jars leftover from my homemade jam, so this would be a fun way to repurpose them for me.
