Christmas Jar Decorations are so fun and festive for the holiday. Here are several ideas on how you can put together your own cute snowy village!
I’ve seen a few examples of these Christmas in a jar decorations floating around on social media and since I already had a cookie jar, I knew I wanted to put together my own version!
Below I share where I got all of the supplies and a few tips and tricks for creating your own snowy Christmas village.
For this project you’ll need
Other items shown in the photos:
- Buffet cabinet
- Peonies book
- Cream vase
- Pampas grass bouquet
- Feather trees
- Stocking holders
1. Empty the fake snow into the jars.
Try to create a small opening in the bag because the snow will go everywhere! Shake the jar a little to distribute the snow evenly.
2. Arrange your figures in the jars.
Make sure to put the tallest items in the biggest jars or the lid won’t fit on top.
3. Place the jars around your house.
These Christmas jar decorations look great on a mantle, on your kitchen counter, or on a cabinet/buffet. You can also add fairy lights and more trees to set the scene.
Tips and Tricks
If you can’t find fake snow, it’s ‘snow’ problem! You can use white sugar, powdered sugar, or even flour.
Be sure to check the measurements of your jars and the items you want to place in them before you buy anything. I had to buy two different houses until I found one that would fit in my large cookie jar.
And on that note, opt for smaller figures instead of large ones. The smaller the items, the more you’ll be able to fit in your jars.
If you’re having a hard time finding the right size items, check craft stores for their mini tree section. I know Hobby Lobby has an entire aisle dedicated to mini decorations.
I chose to place the fairy lights around the jars on my cabinet, but you can put them in the jars too if you’d like.
Don’t feel like you need to buy anything to put together these snow villages! You can definitely utilize glass jars, Mason jars, pantry ingredients, and Christmas decorations you already have. I love taking items I already have and arranging them in a new way. Get creative!
When you’re ready to put away your decorations at the end of the season, carefully shake off each piece as you remove it from the snow. Pour the snow into a resealable gallon bag (it will be easier with two people) and carefully press the air out so you can use it again next year!
