The classic mason jar is my ideal crafting supply for a whole world of DIY projects. These jars are just for packing grandma’s jam! They have been used as planters, picture holders and chandeliers to name a few, and can be decorated and embellished in multiple ways.
Pictured (shoddily) above is my quirky take on the snow globe tutorial I found a couple years ago. I swapped out the suggested wintry tree with white snow for a zombie businessman figurine with red, bloody glitter. These make great gifts, as this undead globe was my boyfriend’s birthday present.
I found the snow globe tutorial through Ready Made Magazine, but can’t find the exact link anymore. Luckily, mason jar snow globes are widely made throughout the crafting world, so I was able to find the same basic instructions.
