1.  Remove lids and spray paint.  I used the Krylon Glitter Blast in silver, but white would work just as well.

*optional step (not shown) – I sprayed tress and snowmen with spray adhesive then sprinkled with glitter

2.  Hot glue your trees and snowmen to the lids (I also glued the canning lids together)

3.  Fill jars with just a little snow.

4.  Screw lids back on.

These are just too fun and easy to make – after waiting for my lids to dry, I made all 4 of these in under a half hour.  It’s a great holiday craft to do with the kids!

Have fun!

    These are adorable. I made a couple last year but plan to make more this year! One that I have seen and loved is a car with tiny tree tied to the top with bakers twine. Super cute!!
