Winter Wonderland Jar

The other day I quickly arranged this cute and fun Winter Wonderland Jar! 

[Please note, that this post contains affiliate links, for more info please also read my disclosure. By purchasing through my blog, I receive a small comission, the price however remains the same for you!]

I had bought some of these jars with a lid and originally wanted to store coffee and sugar in them, but then quickly changed my mind… I wanted to make these Winter Wonderland Jars last year already and at the end never did. It was hard finding bottle brush trees here where I live, so we simply went for a walk to a park and picked up some pine branches that I used instead. 

              Winter Wonderland Jar:


~ faux snow

bottle brush trees or pine branches from the garden

deer ornament or figurine

wood slices

I started with the faux snow, then arranged the greenery as the background.

After that, I added the deer ornament. I didn’t have a figurine, so I used an ornament I really love, but anything goes, right? What ever you’ve got handy and want to put into your Winter Wonderland Jar!

And at last I added a small pinecone and some woodslices in front of everything else. 




If you like it, pin it!!

I love decorating with jars and a Winter Wonderland Jar is so much fun, because you can really add anything that pops in mind when thinking of Christmas and Winter!

    Hallo Katrin, was für eine wunderhübsche Idee! Ich hab sie mir gleich auf Pinterest mitgenommen, damit ich sie demnächst mal nachmachen kann.
    Herzliche Grüße

    I love mason jars, but the ones with the metal closure are a favorite. Not only do they seal in the freshness they look really cool. This was a great choice for the Winter Wonderland jar. It adds so much to the decor piece. I bet this looks perfect in your Scandinavian Christmas decor, actually it would look great in any home. You can tailor it to match your decorations. I love the natural elements too, the wood slices and the greenery look great.

    Katrin, what a lovely little jar! And those pine branches are so unique and lovely. Very different than what we have here.
    I would imagine that you have your home all ready for the holidays now…and this little jar will be a perfect addition to everything else you have going on.
    Have a great weekend.

    Hugs, Lynn

      Hi Lynn, my home is almost ready, yes, and I’m going slow this year… but enjoying it too! I love the smell of pine branches and have them everywhere this year, these little ones are quite unique, hey? I had never seen them before either..we found them in a park… Have a great weekend as well!!! Thank you for the visit 🙂

    That such a beautiful idea Katrin. I think it’s more special because you used branches you picked on one of your walks and the little reindeer really adds such a lovely touch to the winter wonderland. Making something like this is probably the closet I’ll get to snow, so I’m off to find a myself little ornament 😉

    I made three or four winterscapes in large jars last year… they are so pretty. I never though to put in the cut branch slices though. What a lovely addition. This is beautiful.

    This winter wonderland jar is too cute, love it! Your kreative mind never ceases to amaze me! I’m in awe of how you look at this empty jar and see something beyond its intended purpose. I think the pine branches and wood slices add the perfect touch for your Nordic theme. Thank-you for this lovely post, so enjoying your Christmas decor.

    This is adorable, Katrin. It will probably be the only winter wonderland you’ll get in the South of Spain. Looking at snow without freezing temperatures sounds good to me. 🙂

    Hello Katrin,
    this is absolutely lovely. A row of these jars on the mantel, a chain of lights in between: must be dreamlike!
    Thank you for this idea!

      Thank you so much Marjan! I wish I had a mantel, I am trying to get a fake one or something…you’re right, they’d look nice on one!!!
