Why do I love glass jars so much?
For starters I save all my glass jars and collect them on a shelf in my basement. When inspiration strikes I can just grab a jar and start creating. I have used these jars to organize my craft room and decorate for Thanksgiving.
A pretty craft and saving the planet just a little by reusing an old jar. You really can’t go wrong!
Today’s snow covered mason jar is made mostly with Dollar Tree supplies. I grabbed a jar from my stash and the rest of the supplies at my local Dollar Tree.

You can use these first basic steps to cover your jar in snow, then get creative and add your own festive touches to these jars. They look great in multiples lining a mantle or collected in a group as a centerpiece. The options are endless!
- Paint brush
- Paper plate
- Start by painting the outside of the jar with a thin layer of Mod Podge.
- Hold the jar over a paper plate and sprinkle on epsom salt. You can also pour the salt onto the plate and press the sides of the jar into it until the salt sticks to the jar.
- Set the jar aside and let it dry for at least 30 minutes.
- When the jar is dry tie a piece of twine around the top and string an ornament or 2 around the top. Or choose whatever embellishments fit your decor to decorate these jars.
- Add a tea light and use these jars to decorate your home for Christmas.
