Things You'll Need:
Mini Glass Jars (available at craft stores or online)

Step One: Cut the top of your mini Christmas tree off to make it even smaller if it is too large
Step Two: Using toothpick, carefully apply hot glue to the bottom of your mini jar, and then place your tree or object inside. Hot glue dries very fast, so you want to make sure you get a good amount in your jar and attach your tree quickly.
Step Three: Let dry completely, then fill your pendant with desired amount of glitter or snow. Use Extra fine glitter because it looks more like snow.
Step Four: Once your mini winter wonderland is assembled the way you like, Attach your jump ring through the cork, bending it at the bottom to ensure it stays in bottle. put hot glue on the cork, and seal! Attach chain, and wear or give them as awesome Christmas gifts!
Note: You can also attach little charms to the inside using an eye hole pin, just push it through cork, attach charm making another eye hole loop, and seal your mini jar the same way!
