You don’t need many details to get effective Christmas  jar. This is what you will need to do in order to get this great snow globe:

  • A clear plastic or glass bottle 1/4 full of rubbing alcohol.
  • Add one drop of food coloring if you want to give the liquid mix some color (and make it easier to differentiate the alcohol layer from the layer of oil that we will add next). Fill the remainder of the bottle with baby or vegetable oil (the oil will sit on top of the alcohol).  Leave a bit of room in the lid area for the tiny, shiny stuff.
  • Add glitter, sequins, small beads or any other tiny, shiny objects.
  • Fill the remainder of the bottle, all the way to the rim, with baby oil.
  • Screw the lid on tightly.  Tape it so it does not come loose (or apply a little glue to the inside of the lid before twisting in on).Note: If you are using a wide-mouth jar for your bottle, you can also glue some sort of decoration (e.g. church, snowman, Christmas tree, plastic deer, etc.) to the inside of the lid before putting the lid on the jar.
  • Gently shake the bottle to mix the alcohol and oil together.  The mixture will turn a milky color and the shiny stuff will float and spin in the mixture.
  • Allow the mixture to settle.  The oil will separate from the alcohol after about 5 minutes.

16. Frosted Jars
