~ Greetings Friends ~
and a warm welcome to
25 Days of Christmas with The Twisted Stitcher!
I'm sharing a quick, easy decorating idea. It uses:
Bottle Brush Trees:
These are Lemax trees and are found at Michael's by their Christmas Village Stuff
Then you buy some snow....
this is Buffalo Snow variety, I got it at Michael's right by the Christmas Village Stuff, but Hobby Lobby and Joann's also carries it, under different names, but all the same stuff
(chewed up plastic wrap type stuff).
Did you all know...
that I have a Ball Jar collection? Well I do! They are all the canning jars from my Grandma Epperson. She was a farmer's wife and she did a lot of canning and I inherited them and I love them and cherish them. They are on top of my kitchen cabinets and during the summer they have white daisies in them. Last Christmas and Winter I had white poinsettias in them, but this year they are snow globes!
The big Quart Jars get large bottle brush trees:
The wee little jelly jars get teensie tiny trees:
And they go back on top of my cabinets:
These are only on one side of my kitchen the other side has about 20 more jars!
I decorate seasonally, and I wanted something that could last Christmas and Winter so I wouldn't have to take down after Christmas and just leave up until I decorate for spring. I think this idea fit the bill! And I figure I can dump out the snow into a Ziploc bag, and reuse next Christmas and Winter Season. Now that's economical people! I've already had a couple of my friends decide this was a pretty cool decorating idea, and I love it too :_
So go peeps...
back to Michaels/Joanns/Hobby Lobby
and buy some snow and fill your jars and plop a sweet tree in there and dream of the winter!
And on a side note...
did you know that Ball Jar Company is a Hoosier company?
Yep, it sure is! Ball Jars is located in Muncie Indiana, home to Ball State University!
I love Indiana :)
and that folks...
is day Fifteen!
