There are lots of ways to create a Christmas in a Jar craft. I decided to use a cookie jar instead of the more often used mason jar. I’ve had this glass cookie jar for a number of years and it rarely gets used. Now, it’s a fun Snowy Christmas in a Jar decor piece.
- Glass Cookie Jar
- Craft Snow
- Dollar Store Ornaments
- Floral Berries
- Faux Fur Ribbon
- White Yarn
I gathered items that I thought I might use for the scene inside of the jar. I didn’t end up using all of these, but I did manage to include enough to give the jar a full look. I started by adding craft snow to the jar.
To add some sparkle, I scattered clear plastic beads on top of the snow flakes.
I bent the stem of a snowflake pick so that it would stand in the jar near the back. The snowman is one of a set of two that I purchased at the Dollar Tree. He’s hot glued in place.
I added some blue floral berries on each side of the snowman.The bottle brush tree is glued near the front of the jar.
The jar has a plain metal lid that needed to be dressed up.
- Cut a piece of glittery felt in a circle to fit and attach it using spray adhesive.
- Add a strip of faux fur ribbon around the lip of the lid. Use small dots of hot glue to hold it in place.
- Run a piece of fluffy yarn around the lid to cover the seam between the faux fur and the felt. Hot glue it in place.
- Glue a snowflake ornament (Dollar Tree) to the top and bottom of lid.
- Glue a silver and blue floral stem to the center of the lid.
One of our guest rooms is done using shades of blue. This will be a fun piece of decor for the room for Christmas.
