Are you good at crafts? Do you enjoy preparing any kind of decorations yourself? Christmas is nothing but a great opportunity to prove your worth!
Any decorations consisting of a jar look so spectacular. A pinch of glitter, plastic flowers, Christmas characters and ribbons will quickly turn them into some original and atmospheric decorations.
A SNOWY JAR
Step by step
#1 Glue a small artificial tree to the inside of the lid and wait till it cures.
#2 Pour distilled water into the jar, add a bit of glycerin and glitter. Mix it all.
#3 Put in the tree, turn the lid and turn the jar upside down.
Doesn’t the snow look magical?
Instead of the tree, you can also put :
#1 A snowman
#2 Cars, animals or pinecones
#3 Pictures of family or friends
#4 Artificial plants or genuine ones
#5 Kids would love to see some famous cartoon characters there
IN THE KITCHEN
Your kitchen will look much more ‘festive’ if you decorate the jar containing spices or ingredients.
#1 Pour some sugar, salt or rice into a huge jar. On the surface put some plastic or wooden figures
#2 Even a common salt shaker can be turned into a nice Christmas gadget. Just put inside some tiny Christmas trees, add a ribbon and that’s it!
#3 A sugar bowl can be easily (and cheaply) converted into an elegant decoration
#4 A jar of coarse salt with a bus carrying a Christmas tree, lying on the table
GLITTER, SALT AND PAINT
The walls of the jar can also be decorated. You can paint it a desired color and cover with salt mixed with glitter. Finally, attach the Christmas ornaments.
#1 Jar completely covered with salt and decorated with pine cones, mountain ash and green twigs
#2 A white jar with a transparent Christmas-tree
#3 Put a candle into a glittered jar to make a wonderful lantern
#4 Jars, no matter their size, can also be covered with pieces of old newspapers or carol chords
#5 Colorful lanterns filled with sugar
#6 A painted and decorated jar as a vase
ALL THE LIGHTS
Perhaps the easiest way to decorate the jars is putting some light inside. By night they will create a magical atmosphere.
#1 Pour some salt, sugar or decorative sand onto the bottom and put the lights in
#2 The lights together with a Christmas doll
#3 A jar filled with pinecones and a subtle light chain
