DIY {Snow Globe} Centerpiece

I have always adored snow globes, especially the homemade ones.

Last year I tried making my very own, and they turned out great except for one thing.
The colors from the items inside ended up bleeding into the water and made colored water.

So this year when I decided to make a centerpiece out of my snow globes, I decided to make dry ones.

And I like how they turned out!!

I used small trees, figurines, some holly, confetti snowflakes, fake snow, and glitter inside of the jars.  And then I tied twine on the outside to finish them off.















Linking up with these great parties

I adore the way these came out. I have made these before but used too much stuff - love how all of yours look so coordinating. Love the keys you used to accent the jar - fun stuff - thanks for sharing.
