DIY Snow globes with fairy lights

Ideal for a festive mantelpiece or the perfect DIY gift this season, you can get creative and personalise with existing decorations in your Christmas collection.

What you'll need

Glass apothecary jars
A string of fairy lights
Christmas decorations
Artificial snow

For a single jar display, pop a string of battery Christmas lights in with your snow and you can have a cable free look. For grouping jars together (as shown) it's perfectly fine to have your lights trailing from one to another. Clear or white cables will blend easily with this DIY snowy scene.
