Step 1: Arrange your scene

You can buy Christmas cake toppers and figurines online or from craft or cake decorating shops.

Select a few and put them together on the lid of your jar.

Once you are happy with your arrangement, glue the cake toppers in place.

A glue gun is the easiest thing to use but strong glue would work too.

Step 2: Let it snow

Sprinkle fake snow all over and around your scene, covering the bottom of the lid.

You can sprinkle on glitter too for extra sparkle.

Step 3: Pop on the jar and add a glittery trim

Pop the jar back onto the lid and screw in place. You might want to add a festive trim by gluing some sparkly or velvet ribbon around the rim.

Why not make a set of jars?

 

You could make different snowy scenes, using different sizes and shapes of jars.

They look beautiful in a line on the mantelpiece, especially when the room is lit only by lights from the Christmas tree.
