You will need:
A glass jar
Decor to put inside
Spray paint, optional
First of all, I used regular glass peanut butter jars. My lids are gold color so I left them as is, but you can spray paint yours with glittery paint for example.
I cut out 2 cardboard circles and glued them to the lid.
You have to leave space between the circles and the threads
so the lid will screw on the jar. I wish I would have used 3
circles to raise the decor more. Oh well, live and learn!
Arrange and hot glue the decorations on. I got mine at Hobby Lobby.
Add some snow into the jar. Don't go overboard, a teeny bit is quite
enough. Screw the lid on carefully and turn upside down. I had to
rearrange the snow but that's quite all right :o) By the way,
I didn't glue my lids on.
And this is what they look like. At this point you could add a
ribbon around the bottom of the jar/on the lid but that's optional
especially if you glitter paint your lids.

And a close up of the reindeer one. I think I will add a little bit
more snow. The cost? I spent $6 on the decor and snow without
any coupons (which I had at home. Grrrrr!)
Anthro globes: $18 - 38.00 depending on the size.
Definitely worth making my own!
