Want to keep that feeling of a first snow for the entire winter? My Frosty Snow Day in a Jar Birch Branch Arrangement will look beautiful throughout the season without melting! For more fun winter crafts see my Christmas page.
Another one of my projects from the Make It: Fun® Blog is making its debut today here on my blog! This was my last project of 2016 and I have been patiently waiting to share it here with you.
I took an antique gallon glass jar and created this gorgeous snowy day arrangement. It was really easy to make but what an impact it has. I just love it! To me, it is the essence of winter and you get to keep the feeling of a cold snow day all season long in your home. Here’s how to make it~
Frosty Snow Day in a Jar Birch Branch Arrangement
- Floracraft® Make It: Fun Foam: (4) 3 x 7/8 Inch Foam Discs
- Large 3 Liter Glass Canning Jar
- I Bag of Faux Buffalo Snow
- 5 Faux Birch Branches
- Foliage with a Pine Cone and Thin Wood Branches
- Low-Temp Glue Gun & Glue
The first step will depend on the width of the jar opening. If the opening is smaller than the foam discs, trim off the curved side of the disc until the foam easily slips through the opening.
Using a serrated knife or foam cutter trim all four discs as needed.
Trim all 4 discs as needed. Insert the first disc into the bottom of the jar.
Add low temp glue to the second disc and slip it through the opening and adhere it to the top of the disc in the jar. Repeat with last three discs to create a foam tower.
Insert the birch branches and arrange them so they criss-cross each other. Pour the faux snow into the jar until it reaches the top of the foam discs. Distribute the snow evenly in the jar by shaking it around. I added thin natural wood branch stems and some green pine foliage and that’s it!
I haven’t made an arrangement in a while and when I finished this one. I was so thrilled with it. It would make a great gift, look beautiful greeting your guests just inside an entryway or displayed on your mantle.
