Getting Into the Holiday Spirit

I decided it was about time to spruce up our place. So I added a few super easy DIY decorations. Although I so admire this blogger for really getting into this year.

And while I’m not entirely done yet. Still have a few more Christmasy things to decorate. I thought I’d share a collage of what I’ve been up to.

This year we’re forgoing the Christmas tree – too much eco-friendly controversy. And just gathering together supplies we already have at home (except for the foam and silver pipe cleaners). I still have a few holiday decorations I want to DIM (Do it Myself). But truthfully, I got hit with the flu this week and I’m still recovering. Btw, it’s what I should be doing now instead of blogging…

 *From top left to right:

1. Mason jar + Target ornaments   2. Michael’s tree-shaped foam and silver pipe cleaners. I just wrapped them around the foam poking a hole in the beginning and the end of the pipe cleaner to keep it together. 3. Mason jar + foam balls + floral wire + confetti from this project. 4. Heart-shaped vase with Christmas ornaments.

Creative Friday: DIY Snow Globe

On a jaunt to Anthropologie a few weeks ago, I was mesmerized by this:

I stared at it, picked it up (saw the $25 price tag), scratched my head and had a sudden exciting thought that maybe, just maybe I could do it myself.

And I did.

If you want to re-create the project, check out my recipe below:

Basically, I took this mason jar:

And I stuck double-sided tape on the cover:

Grabbed these twin trees from Michael’s:

Here they are sans plastic container. Aren’t they cute?

Glue gunned them.

Pushed them down onto the lid with double-sided tape for good measure.

And grabbed some snowflake sprinkles.

I simply poured a handful on the lid and voila!

After carefully twisting the cap on it, it was finished.

Happy Fridays are days when I get to be crafty. Did you DIY any holiday crafts lately?
