Please enjoy some last minute crafting additions to our house for a little festive holiday cheer!
For the Christmas Carboy I simply decorated Jamie’s gnome hat from Halloween with evergreen sprigs and a nice garland I made by gluing pinecones and stringing beads on a piece of fat yarn. I then plopped it on one of our carboys that isn’t in use, and placed it with another spruce sprig on Jamie’s tiny chair over a coffee sack. I also taped a flashlight in the opening of the carboy so you can light it up at night and added a stained glass decoration that came with our house. Voila– now we have a place for gifts!
For the Canning Jar Snowman I stuffed an old lacy curtain that came with the house into a half gallon jar. I then made a little top hat with cardboard, glue, and some pinecones and spruce sprigs. I fitted the hat onto a regular mouth pint jar, tucked some of the lace into that jar too and lightly glued the jars together so he won’t fall apart but I will be able to peel them apart after the holidays. I added a chunky yarn scarf and some pinecone buttons and I had myself a snowman! It took no more than 20 minutes from dreaming it up to final product.
