Things You'll Need

Tip

To clean jars, soak them in water, then scrape away labels with a razor and use Goo Gone or baby oil to rub the stickiness away.

Step 1: Prepare and Stuff Boxes

Cupcake boxes like the ones used here can be found online or at restaurant supply stores. These are 7-inch-by-7-inch-by-3-inch.

Fold up your boxes and gently stuff some tissue paper in them.

Step 2: Decorate Jars

Add ribbon, washi tape or string to the lids of the jars that have writing or decorative elements on them to make the resulting snow globes even cuter.
