Using globe jars for Christmas crafts
Globe shaped jars make wonderful modern snow globes. Create your snowy scene on the lid of the jar by gluing ornaments to the lid – a typical Christmas scene might include a fir tree, a reindeer, Father Christmas and a sack of gifts, for example. Leave the glue to dry for at least 24 hours to make sure your ornaments are secure on their base. Now turn your attention to the jar. Add a spoonful of white or silver glitter to the empty jar, then fill it almost to the top with distilled water and add about five drops of glycerin to the mixture. Screw on the lid and watch the ‘snow’ glitter fall on your winter scene!
You can also use the jars to make mega hot chocolate gifts – simply fill the jars about halfway with a mixture of good quality hot chocolate powder and finely grated dark chocolate. Lay two chocolate mint squares on top and fill the rest of the jar with mini marshmallows. Add a pretty label detailing how to make up the drink.
You can also make pretty winter luminaries out of jars – use a white glass pen to paint snowflakes or other winter motifs on the outside of the jars, then pour salt into the jars to about an inch up the side. Place a tealight onto the salt ‘snow’ and use to create a Christmassy atmosphere.
