Christmas Mason Jar (with car)

Ever since I have been looking for ideas to make "snow globe" mason jars, I have been waiting to make one similar to this one from "It All Started with Paint".

It took me so long to make because I couldn't find a vintage car....all they sell are race cars!  I looked online and all I could find were cars that would cost a minimum $10 with shipping...no thank you :/

Then my daughter told me I should look through my son's box of cars I had in the garage.  I was doubtful since he mainly loved construction trucks.  But I did find 2 possible cars I could use.  One was a 50's car, but I felt it was too "lowrider" for me hahaha.  So I picked this bug...


It did need a paint job though.  I went to Michaels and just picked up Martha Stewart High Gloss Habanero.  It took a few coats to cover up the graffiti art on the car, but it was worth it.


The tree is a bit big, but I love it!  (The picture doesn't do it justice--it is red not pink.)

Thank you for looking.

  1. Super-cute! Isn't it crazy how hard it is to find a regular Matchbox/Hot Wheels car for this project?!? I'm still holding out hope though!

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I love to read your comments! I usually reply to all comments, but I don't think a notification is given once I reply.

Also, I have been told that sometimes the comments do not show up...I do not know why that is...if it doesn't show up, then I don't see them.
