How To Make Car in Jar Snow Globe. Easy Kids Craft for Christmas!

Car In Jar Snow Globe

I was so confident that this project would come together easily …


easily and peasily, if you will …


And, truth be told, once I had my supplies it was a breeze …

The biggest challenge was finding the vintage car.


I mistakenly thought I would find one among my son’s collection of Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars.  A collection he just can’t seem to part with.  Even though he’s now 16.  And even though the old car cases are shoved deep under the TV armoire …


And as I rummaged through the remnants of his childhood, I came to realize that he was always attracted to the raciest of cars.  Souped up with lots of flames …


nothing that inspired the homey, Norman Rockwell feel I was after.


I guess, when it comes down to it, what kid wants to push around mini vans and wood sided station wagons?


But I wasn’t deterred.  My great white hope was the thrift store.  Surely I’d find a giant box of vintage cars there …


Um. No.


It was at this point that I started to question my plan …


and questioning why I hadn’t even bothered to come up with a Plan B.


My next (and final) stop was Toys R Us.  And I’ll be honest with you, it wasn’t looking good.  I was faced with an aisle filled with race cars in neon colors and monster trucks.


But then there … there at the very end of the aisle … tucked behind three other cars, I found it.


The perfect car.  The perfect vintage car to use in my snow globe scene …

Now for the easy part.  I started by cutting off the base from my bottle brush tree …

… and then tied to the tree to the top of the car using baker’s twine.




The final step: Put the car in the jar on a small bed of faux snow.

And voila.
