DIY: Mason Jar Winter Wonderland

These little Christmas display mason jars are really simple to make and would be a cute hostess gift for a holiday party. I got almost everything I needed for these at Dollar Tree. Read on to learn how to make your own!

What you'll need:
  • large mason jars
  • small Christmas trees
  • some sort of Styrofoam or floral foam
  • toothpicks
  • fake snow (I got mine at Jo-Anns)
  • spray paint
  • tiny animals or toys
  • twine or ribbon
  • scissors
  • small ornaments

Start by painting the mason jar lids.

While the lids dry you can fill your jars. Cut a small flat piece of foam for the bottom of the jar and attach the animals and trees with toothpicks.

Put all of the items in the jars and then cover them with snow until the foam is hidden. Use a stick or scissors to knock the snow off of the trees.

Screw the lids on and tie the ornaments around the top of the jar using twine. You can also attach a gift tag.

You can make little scenes using all sorts of items. The possibilities are endless!


  1. How cute! What color is the spray paint for the lids?
