Mason Jar Snow Globes: Vintage Car & Truck Snow Globes.
It’s that time again. The time for the mason jar snow globes featuring vintage cars. And (this year) vintage trucks. And perhaps my favorite …
The vintage Volkswagen bus!
Now, I realize these are not really snow globes (as a kind reader so kindly pointed out). I realize real snow globes have liquid and allow you to turn them upside down so you can see the snow gently falling on the scene.
If you turned these mason jar snow globes upside down hoping to see the snow gently falling you will be disappointed. And just end up with a winter car crash scene. Which would not be in the spirit of the holiday.
So I get it. These mason jar snow globes are not snow globes. But what they are is just too cute. Seriously. And they even appeal the now-grown-but-once-young men in your life. My husband just loves the little vintage cars and trucks.
And here’s a quick recap of how to make your very own mason jar snow globes …
How To Make Mason Jar Snow Globes
MATERIALS USED & SOURCES*
Volkswagen Beetle: Greenlight Diecast 1:64 in Red (used in this tutorial but sold out at my Etsy shop)

Bottle Brush Trees, Snow, Jingle Bells
All craft stores carry these items seasonally. However, you can also find them on Amazon at the following links:

Cut the bottom plastic piece off bottle brush tree using wire cutters.
The windows on the Volkswagen Beetle do not open. So I wrapped the Baker’s twine around the car. I started by taping the twine to the bottom of the car.Wrap the twine twice around the car to attach the tree.
If the car you are using has open windows, then you can thread the twine through the two open windows like so. (And here’s a link to the Ford Country Squire 1964 in Red from Auto World Muscle Wagons 1:64 Scale).
And tie a knot to secure tree on top of car.
Add some faux snow on the bottom of the mason jar.
Add car with tree tied to top.
Wrap some twine around the canning lid and tie on some jingle bells.
And you’re done.
