Mason Jar Snow Globe with Vintage Jeep Wrangler – Mason Jar Crafts for Christmas.
It’s that time of year again. That time when we start thinking about Christmas. And Christmas decoration. And Christmas crafts …
and one of my hands down favorite of all favorite Christmas crafts with mason jars is the waterless mason jar snow globe.
Each year, I try to seek out a new vintage car to feature in my snow globe. In year’s past, I’ve shared a woody station wagon. And a vintage Buick. And a vintage VW Beetle. And VW Bus.
But this year, it’s the vintage Jeep Wrangler.
A car that is near and dear to my heart because this is the car I first learned how to drive manual. Or stick shift. Or whatever the term is …
It was me and my brother in my brothers Jeep in the elementary school parking lot. Let’s just say, there was some grinding of the gears going on. 🙂
And while my brother’s Jeep was all black-on-black, when I crossed paths with this red-and-black Jeep I knew it would be the perfect addition to my mason jar snow globe collection!

What an adorable idea! Pinned! Tomorrow we are hosting the Whisk It Wednesday Link Party and I thought you might want to share here too! Hope your Thanksgiving is filled with lots of love and laughter! ~ Carrie
Such a great idea and thank you so much for sharing!
Have a blessed day!
Do you glue the objects down at all so they don’t moved around or tumble in the jar?
I don’t. But you could always glue the car down if you wanted.
So this is a snow globe that you wouldn’t actually shake since the car isn’t attached to anything. Is that correct?

I love the Mason Jar Snow Globe but am having a problem with static electricity INSIDE of the mason jar. When I add the faux snow to the bottom it ends up clinging to the sides of the jar! Has anyone else had this problem? If so…advice? tips? Thanks!
Sorry for the late response and hope you solved this! If not, I’d recommend washing out the jar with hot soapy water to get rid of the static. I think that might help? I’ve never encountered this problem …
