PostSubject: Snow Globe Terrariums   Mon Dec 08, 2014 8:28 am



I can remember the first time my mother showed me the beauty found in a single snowflake. Although teeny tiny, each one is uniquely different. Ever since, I’ve kind of adored snow. Some may say, even to the extreme (so what if I prayed for snow a time or ten).

At the top of our stairs rested some empty apothecary jars. It seemed only fitting to make snow scenes. The first attempt did not include the lights. Still beautiful but not magical. But let me tell you, finding that extra strand of lights (ironically with white wire) at the bottom of our Christmas bin was like finding gold!

Snowy Christmas magic all. day. long!




Start to Finish Time – 10 minutes. Apothecary jars (old) – Home Goods and World Market. Snow, trees, and village pieces ($1.00 – $4.00) – Walmart, Mini Lights (100) – Target

Ponee, I remember as a kid my mom and all eight of us kids would make these. We would then go around the neighborhood and sell them so all of us kids had a little spending money to but each other Christmas gifts and for mom and dad. It was a lot of fun and not very expensive to do. Thanks for the wonderful reminder of days gone by.  :glo :

I just checked your site out, and it was magnificent- I had forgotten about the apothecary jars, and that reminded me of the ones that my grandmother used to have back in the 50's- My sister makes hers similar to those, and they are really nice-Very Christmasy, indeed!! Thank you for the memories !! :glo :

I feel inspired to make these for everyone next year.  I think they are beautiful, but I think I would use battery operated lights, I don't like the way the cords come out of those that are shown.  I was thinking about using a glass drill but I think the glass is too thin for that.  I know you can do it for wine bottles but the glass is thicker on those of course.

You could always use those little tea lights, that look like a small candle and have the small watch batteries that light them up, the little switch is on the bottom, but not sure if you can get those up there- You can put them down in the jars and surround them with whatever you like, as they don't get hot, so you don't have to worry about starting a fire-And best of all, you won't have any ugly cords or wires hanging all over the place to spoil the look
and the spirit of the meaning of the Holiday-
