Tips to Make Snow Globe Dollar Store Craft

  • If you can’t find a snow globe ornament at the dollar store, don’t overthink this. You can grab a jar or even upcycle a small jar.
  • They don’t carry them at the dollar store (or at least, I didn’t see them at my store) but you can get tiny reindeer to pop into a cloche, too, if you want. I found the adorable mini-reindeer here.
  • Oh, you don’t care for the little red holly bits that I used? That’s ok. Again, don’t overthink this–the dollar store has about a million different baubles and bits to add to your farmhouse candle holders (all of which are a dollar, so you could even grab a couple to try out).

I love the newest addition to my farmhouse decor. This easy snow globe candle dollar store craft just makes the most adorable Christmas centerpiece.

Prep Time 5 minutes

Total Time 30 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $5


  • 3 Halloween battery operated taper candles
  • 3 “canning jar” fillable ornaments
  • Miniatures for Christmas scenes
  • Greenery
  • Floral berries
  • White felt

  • Hot glue gun/glue sticks
  • Scissors


  1. Remove the skulls from the halloween tapers (if you know, you're like me and that's what you're using).
  2. Take the hanging parts off the ornament and discard. The tapers will fit nicely in the remaining hole.
  3. Trace and cut out the jar lid shape onto the felt, 3 circles for each ornament.
  4. Affix 3 felt circles onto the inside of each ornament lid.
  5. Glue the figurine on top of the felt circles.
  6. Replace the lid onto the ornament. Set aside.
  7. Wrap the buffalo check fabric around the candle taper, marking the size necessary to cover the taper completely.
  8. Cut the fabric to size.
  9. Hot glue the fabric in place around the taper. Allow hot glue to dry completely.
  10. Press the candle into the hole in the top of the ornament and hot glue in place.
  11. Wrap the joint between the ornament and taper with the greenery.
  12. Add little berries to the greenery.
