So I started with a simple jar, bought at Walmart some time ago. I partially filled it with epsom salts and sprinkled a bit of glitter on top. I arranged an old photo (vintage winter scene of my mother and three of her siblings), plus various styles and textures of snowflakes.
This is what the photo actually looks like. I know it's very hard to see what's inside the jar.
As for other items in the jar, there are a couple of silvery plastic snowflakes, a pretty clear glass snowflake there in the front, bits of a broken blue glass snowflake, a seed-bead-trimmed felt snowflake there to the right of the photo, and a star-shaped Glittery Paper Ornament toward the far right. My snowflake-shaped ornaments of the same type are already in place on the picture window garland, but I'll show a picture of one below.

I'm fairly pleased with how it came out. I think it might be better with a closer-up photo, and I do have others that might work, but I really wanted to use this photo because I just like it.
