On a marble table sit three mason jars full of Christmas candy. On top of each mason jar is a DIY snowglobe with holiday scenes.

It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year! It’s nearly impossible for me to not immerse myself in all of the fun that comes with The Holiday Season. You’ll find me shopping, watching super cute Christmas movies, in the kitchen making a sweet treat, and (of course) DIY’ing my way through gifts, decor, and everything in between.

An acrylic dome, a mason jar lid, tiny Christmas scene decor, and scissors are some of the supplies needed to make DIY mason jar snowglobe crafts.

Gather Your Supplies before you begin

A piece of white cardstock lays on a gray tabletop. On the paper is a pencil, a mason jar lid, and half of a clear fillable ornament.

Gather your supplies.
I’m using a standard mason jar, so a 70 mm Christmas fillable ball will be the size I need for the globe top.

TIP 1: You may need to trim down some of your pieces if you are using the 70mm ball half like I am.

Tip 2: These plastic fillable balls are available in many sizes. You could use an extra large mason jar to fill as a cookie jar!

Tip 3: If your mason jar lid is in 2 pieces you will need to add a lip of glue to the inside so it stays together as one piece.

Now, let’s get started!

These are some supplies needed for a DIY snowglobe mason jar craft. A jarl lid, scissors, a cut cardstock circle, and a fillable clear ornament half are on a gray table.

Step 1:
Trace a circle on white cardstock using your mason jar lid as a guide. Then cut the circle out.

A half dome of clear acrylic is next to a cardstock circle with a miniature deer figurine. These are the first couple of steps in making a DIY snowglobe mason jar craft.

Step 2:
Once you have cut out your circle, it’s time to glue down your pieces of choice. I’ve chosen some polymer clay characters and small pieces from my local craft store.

Step 3:
Once you glue your pieces down sprinkle some snow over the top.

The snowglobe scene now includes two deer figurines with three snowy trees around them. The ornament half and the mason jar lid lay next to the holiday scene.

Step 4:
Cover the rim of your ball with glue and press down onto the cardstock.
