Repurposed Holiday Decor:  Snow Scene Jar

Repurposed Holiday Decor: Snow Scene Jar

Tired of the Christmas decor you own?  Or, did you (like me) have a piece break and become unusable?  Never fear!  You can repurpose those old decor items into something fresh and new – just in time for Christmas.

I had a lovely candle holder, which I used in my Christmas decorating every year.  The crackled-glass jar sat on top of a goldish-silver pedestal, and looked perfectly coordinated with my vintage-look Santa, all dressed in white.

Unfortunately, a mishap [read: I dropped the box the candle holder was in and shattered the glass into a thousand tiny pieces] meant I could no longer use my lovely candle holder.  Bah!  The pedestal was still in good shape, though, and it gave me an idea…

Instead of tossing it out, I set a pint-sized mason jar on top.  Then, I added a small porcelain Santa figure and a bottle-brush tree, along with a teeny-tiny plastic Christmas gift.  A bit of hot glue ensured that everything would stay in place.  I sprinkled in a little faux snow, and voila!  Instant snow-globe-in-a-jar!  I added the lid to the jar, covering the top with a bit of wintry fabric to finish it off.  Then, the jar was hot-glued to the top of the pedestal.

I’m just tickled with how it turned out.  I think Santa likes it, too…can you see him gazing at it from the background?  I always love a mix of old and new, glitzy and rustic, so this project was right up my alley. Give it a try – with or without a fancy pedestal.  You can use miniature Christmas tree ornaments for your figures, or scour the thrift store for some items to create your own snow globe.  Enjoy!
