Ready for a quick, fun, almost tutorial free project? These little snow globes are so cute but they don’t take too much effort… 5 minute craft anyone?
We’ll start by making a few resin Christmas trees (that is not a 5 minute craft… although it really doesn’t take that long if you’re only pouring a single color) or you can grab a few mini Christmas trees here if you’d rather not make your own.
Then we’ll start on the snow globe portion!
Let’s do this!

Step 1: Gather your Supplies
Half of this project is just gathering everything into one place! You’ll need your little trees, a few glass containers and fake snow.
A bit of glitter would be great too but you know… glitter makes the biggest mess! So use with caution!
Either way we’ll get started… you can use mason jars, vases or glass cloches for your snow globes. I used a combination of glass pieces I already owned but if you’re starting from scratch you’ll want to use a few different heights and shapes to keep things interesting.
Once you have all of your supplies we’ll move on to assembling them!
Step 2: Add your Fake Snow
Fake snow time! This stuff is almost as bad as glitter… but let’s face it glitter gets everywhere and fake snow only gets most places.
Go ahead and fill all of your containers 3/4 of the way full and then push it down so that it’s a compressed to about half way. If you just fill it half way the weight of your trees will push it down further leaving only the top of your trees showing.
Which is not the goal!
We want our trees to sit on top of the snow as much as possible… so fill those babies up!
Step 3: Add your Resin Christmas Trees
Now it’s time to add our tiny resin Christmas trees!
As long as you pushed the fake snow down a bit the trees should sit mostly on top of the snow. You can arrange the trees in your containers and then fluff the top of snow up just a bit so that the trees are sitting in a snowy wonderland.
Step 4: Enjoy!
And that’s it! Container, SNOW, Trees… repeat!
They turned out soooo cute! I especially love the little trees in the drink dispenser! After the holiday season I’ll clean these babies out and they’ll go back into service holding drinks, bath bombs in my bathroom, craft supplies in my office and even soap by the kitchen sink.
Until then they’re adorable snow globes for Christmas!
Plus they go perfectly with my little winter wonderland glass cloche! The cut files for that Cricut project are a beast!
