12 DIYs of Christmas 2019
DIY Snow Globe Container for Treats
Today, I am sharing the 6th DIY of the 12 DIYs of Christmas 2019, y’all! This easy Christmas dessert snow globe container is a great gift for teachers, neighbors, friends or favors for kids Christmas parties. The best part is that you can fill them up with any kind of treat. My favorite is white chocolate popcorn, but store bought candies works great too.
DIY Snow Globe Container
The DIY snow globe container cost me about $5 to make with supplies from Dollar General. However, most craft stores like Joann’s or Hobby Lobby will have these items, too. It only takes about 5 minutes to make! Here’s what you will need…
- plastic mason jar style container
- clear plastic round ornament
- small Christmas figurines like mini trees, snowmen and deer
- faux snow
- hot glue/glue gun
Step 1. Take the clear plastic ornament apart (it comes in two halves) and snap off the small hanger. You can see it pictured on the left. You only need one half of the ornament per container.
Step 2. Remove the two parts of the lid. Hot glue 2-3 small figurines onto the flat part of the lid. I like grouping a deer, Santa or snowman next to a tree. Snip the top of the tree with scissors, if necessary to fit under globe.
Step 3. Next, hot glue the fuzzy faux snow onto the lid, around the figurines. If you can not find this exact lid, hot glue the figurines, then faux snow & the round ornament directly onto the lid.
Step 4. Lace ribbon through the holes of the circle lid. Then, replace and hot glue the flat lid inside the circle lid. Lastly, hot glue the round ornament on top of the circle lid.
Step 5. Fill the container with any kind of treat. Then, replace the lid and tie the ribbon on.
Easy Christmas Dessert
In addition, I filled these containers with my family’s favorite white chocolate popcorn treat. It happens to cost about $5 and 5-10 minutes to make 5 cups, too. Find the delicious recipe, here. Basically, you pour melted white chocolate over popcorn, stir, pour onto a cookie sheet, and add your favorite holiday sprinkles and small candies.
