What You Will Need

  • First, cut the strings off the miniature ornaments. Use the lid of the mason jar trace the inner circle part on the white paper.  Cut the circle and hot glue it to the inner part of the lid.
  • Create a scene by hot gluing the ornaments onto the white piece of paper that is attached to the lid.
  • Then add snow to your scene.
  • Open your clear plastic ornament so it’s in two separate pieces. Attach one half of the ornament to the outer portion of the mason jar lid with hot glue.
  • Place your dome onto the jar. There is a small part of the clear ornament that is meant to have the string attached to it. Be sure that portion of the ornament is turned towards the back of the jar.
