In celebration of the kitchen staple's 100th birthday, we're whipping up do-it-yourself Mason jar snow globes. All you need to create your own are jars in assorted sizes (here, 8, 16, and 32 ounces), waterproof superglue, trinkets (we used mini Christmas trees, but anything from ornaments to small toys will work), glycerin (available at crafts stores), and glitter.
- Use glue to adhere your trinket to the inside of the jar lid. Dry about 24 hours.
- Fill jar with enough water to fully submerge the trinket. Add three to five drops of glycerin and desired amount of glitter.
- Use glue to adhere lid to the jar's metal screw band. Let dry.
- Apply glue to the lid's inner edge, and screw onto jar. Let dry completely before shaking.
