Vintage Salt and Pepper Shaker Snow Globes

DIY vintage salt and pepper shaker snow globes mini reindeer bottle brush tree

I've always loved creating new snow globes each year around Christmas time. I had intended to show you all the different snow globes I've created as mentioned in my How To Create A Waterless Christmas Snow Globe post, but I decided instead to focus on one of my favorites. And that would be the vintage salt and pepper shaker snow globes.

Strange, I know, but oh so cute! They're like the perfect receptacle, if you will, for cute and tiny Christmas figurines. And I have some new ones I'd like to share with you today.

Here's a shaker with some faux snow, two teeny tiny bottle brush trees and a mini reindeer sitting atop the lid.

This one's filled with snow and a bottle brush tree. I decorated the outside of the shaker with a bottle brush wreath and tree on top with some jaunty red jute.

Another vintage shaker filled with snow and a bottle brush tree, topped off with a stag and an added green Christmas ball.

Here's another shaker filled with snow, bottle brush tree and a tiny white deer. Again I used a bottle brush wreath on the outside.

You can pick up the miniatures and faux snow at craft stores. I bought the vintage shakers for 50 cents apiece at Goodwill, and some newer shakers from the Dollar Store, again at 50 cents apiece. I keep an eye out for them all year round. I also used tiny glue dots to adhere the trees and deer inside of and on top of the shakers.

I had such a fun time filling these little salt and pepper shakers with my favorite Christmas goodies - bottle brush trees and reindeer! I can't decide on a favorite. What do you think? What would you put in yours?

I can't believe that Christmas is only 9 days away. I have a few more Christmas-related posts up my sleeve but whether I can get them ready in time or not remains to be seen. Right now my priority is turning the house upside down to find my Christmas card address book. I have a great card, but no addresses to send them to (other than close family). Yikes! Wish me luck!

I hope you enjoyed reading about my Vintage Salt and Pepper Shaker Snow Globes. Thanks for spending time with me today!

So cute. I bought little bottles in the $ Store to make some of these with my grandkids this weekend. Last year I made one as an ornament for exchange and it was so fun I knew they would all love it. Wish me luck that the faux snow doesn't end up everywhere.

Kathleen- Those are adorable. I would never think to fill a salt shaker with the mini's. Cuteness itself. They would look cute lined up on a kitchen window. xo Diana
