Ok are you ready for another easy holiday DIY?  Well I told you my theme this year was winter wonderland and I have been on a kick making snowglobes. (Check out these super cute snowglobe ornaments I made for the tree).

This DIY snowglobe tray is a pretty way to serve your holiday cookies or treats. Scroll down to see how I made it and re-create it for yourself!

You will need: (linking everything towards the end of this post)

  • glass or plastic jar with a lid.
  • a large plate or charger
  • hot glue
  • faux snow
  • bottle brush tree
  • bell
  • rub n buff

DIY snowglobe tray


1.) Start by heating up your hot glue gun.

2.) Unscrew the lid to your jar. Add a dab of hot glue to the bottom of the bottle brush tree and place inside in the center of the jar.

3.) Allow to dry for a few minutes and then fill the jar with faux snow.

4.) Place in any other decorative items you want to use. I did some bells and a pinecone.

5.) I was using a gold charger as the tray and wanted it to match the lid to the jar. I squeezed a little rub n buff on the lid and rubbed it in using a paper towel then let dry.

6.) Screw the lid back on your jar.

7.) Again using your hot glue gun, draw a circle of glue on top of the lid then place the charger on top.

8.) Allow to dry then serve your treats.
