Very cute! Early is good, too.

Adorable! I love the idea of the car and tree. I made those jars last year as gifts but used woodland animals with the trees. They were a hit. So easy!

Do you glue the tires to the bottom of he jar?

No, I didn’t glue to car to the bottom.

I really love this! I hope I can find some cute cars like yours! I think I’m going to glue the car to the bottom; the thought of them rolling kind of puts me on edge. Do you think a hole could be drilled into the window and the baker’s twine threaded through with a needle? I mean, seriously, how did those people get out of their car? Love it love it love it..

You could try to drill a hole! And thanks so much. I, too, wonder how those teeny tiny people go in and out!

What is the snow made from?

It’s just plastic pieces (I think). I bought it at Michaels.

This looks so cute. Can’t wait to try it!!!

Hi! Are you going to make more this year to sell at you etsy store? Let me know, I would love to get one! Thanks!

I actually do have cars and trucks up for sale at the Etsy shop. Here’s the link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/dropclothdesignco?ref=hdr_shop_menu§ion_id=20263407

Car in Jar Snow Globe – Mason Jar Christmas Craft.

I realize we’re only a few weeks into Fall. I realize we still have Halloween crafts in mason jars to make. I realize we still have Thanksgiving crafts in mason jars to make. But can you forgive me for jumping ahead to Christmas …

just this one time?

Because, quite honestly, I don’t think I can wait a moment longer before sharing my latest car in jar snow globe. I searched high and low for this vintage red Volkswagen Beetle (finally found some on eBay). And that red woody station wagon (could only snag 3 on eBay but hoping to find more to stock at my Etsy).


Let’s start with the sources and links for materials I used to make this car in jar snow globe. I have to admit that I spent two weeks searching for the Volkswagen Beetle and Ford Country Squire Station Wagons with Wood Panels. I found mine on eBay but wiped out the stock at each seller. However, here are the specific details about the vintage cars I used in my snow globes:


Volkswagen Beetle: Greenlight Diecast 1:64 Club V-Dub 49 VOLKSWAGEN TYPE 1 SPLIT WINDOW BEETLE Red

Woody Station Wagon: AUTO WORLD MUSCLE WAGONS 1964 FORD COUNTRY SQUIRE Red 1:64 scale

Here’s a link to 1:64 diecast vintage cars on Amazon

How To Make A Car In Jar Snow Globe

Cut the bottom plastic piece off bottle brush tree using wire cutters.

The windows on the Volkswagen Beetle do not open. So I wrapped the Baker’s twine around the car. I started by taping the twine to the bottom of the car.

Wrap the twine twice around the car to attach the tree.

And tie a knot to secure tree on top of car.

Add some faux snow on the bottom of the mason jar.

Add car with tree tied to top.

Wrap some twine around the canning lid and tie on some jingle bells.

And you’re done.

For the Ford station wagon, I was able to feed the twine through the front window.

I’m also selling these Car in Jar Mason Jar Snow Globes at my Etsy shop. The Beetle can be found by clicking here.
