Well, you guessed it, I just had to make my own!
As my 6 year old says, it was easy peasey lemon squeezy.
In fact, I can’t imagine an easier craft.
I had some mason jars on hand from pickles and jam (who doesn’t, lol?), but I bought a couple of really large ones at Michael’s, all together, they were under $6. I had some fake snow filler leftover from past projects (this stuff is available at any craft store), and I used a large spoon to fill each jar about one-third full. Then I threw in some evergreen twigs and moss and sprinkled a little more snow over the top.
The votive holders that I used would not fit through the top of the jar, my original plan. However, they sat nicely in the opening, giving a kinda floating effect, so I went with it. (My general rule: Even if it doesn’t work out the way you plan: own it!). Finally, for the bling, I tied some grosgrain ribbon and twine around the top, and added these adorable junky little word keys that I found at Michael’s. These were a little pricier than I would have liked ($16), but I couldn’t resist. If you have any old keys on hand, they would do. (By the way, the entire collection by Jim Holtz Idea-ology is AMAZING).
So here they are! What do you think?
Happy Christmas crafting and decorating,
