Mason Jar Glitter Globes for Gifts or Decorations

I’m always on the hunt for new crafts to make, and when I can make them with the kiddos, it’s even better.  Mason Jar Glitter Globes are simple and inexpensive, and they make wonderful gifts and decorations.  My kids had a blast making them, and if you are part of a scouting troop, they would make a great project.  All it takes is a mason jar (wide mouth work best), some little trees that you can find in the “Christmas Village” section of any craft or dollar store, glitter, and some glue.  In minutes, you’ll have beautiful Mason Jar Glitter Globes ready for giving.

Simple Instructions for Mason Jar Glitter Globes

The instructions are simple for Mason Jar Glitter Globes, and these globes have a lot of potential for fun.  Try different glitters and decorations for inside the jars for different looks, or decorate the lids with ribbons for a fancy finish.  Walk through your favorite craft store for ideas and always check out the miniature sections where they have the village of the season.  Dollar stores often have miniature things too, which will give you a great savings.  If you want a clear jar with no “Ball” writing on it for your Mason Jar Glitter Globes, check in the craft store for those as well.  You have to purchase them individually, but you can get smooth jars, and sometimes even plastic ones for smaller children to play with.  If you like, you can seal the jar with a small amount of a two part epoxy, which can be found in any hardware section.
