Want to make your own? Of course you do! Here's what you need:
- Empty Glass Jars-I used Mason Jars and a few olive and salsa jars I emptied from the fridge. The key is to have a variety of shapes and sizes.
- Trees or other figurines-I bought mine at Walmart. I also think snowmen and houses would look great too.
- Spray Paint for the lids and candle sticks. Wooden thread spools would be great for the smaller jars too.
- Candle Stick Holders-Mine were leftover from my cake stand project and were purchased at Goodwill for $0.50 each. I sprayed them the same color as the lids.
- Cotton Batting
- Fake Snow or Glitter.
- Foam-Corner house used styrofoam balls, but they were really expensive. I had foam from my window cornices, so I used that. You could pretty much use anything. It just gives the trees a little lift so they're not sitting low in the lids.
- Glue Gun
Now the fun begins!
- Rinse out and dry the jars really well.
- Spray the lids and candle sticks. I had some issues with my painting yesterday. It was clearly too cold to spray paint outside, but sometimes I have the patience of a 2-year-old and did it anyway. The paint didn't stick really well and it kinda looks like a 2-year-old did it...nothing that a little trim and a glue gun can't fix!
- Glue your foam to the inside of your jar lid. (You can also see my not-so-great paint job really well in this picture! I ended up touching it up with acrylic paint.).
