Try them at home!

Mason Jar Snow Globe Toppers
Materials Needed:

  • Several different sizes of mason jars with lids.
  • Fake snow (I used a plastic-based snow).
  • E6000 Glue
  • Scissors
  • Fillable clear plastic ornaments (the ones that come in 2 parts – you will only need one part per mason jar).
  • Miniature Christmas decorations
  • Ribbon or twine
  • Goodies to fill the mason jars with.

How to:

  1. Use the E6000 glue to glue miniature Christmas figurines to the top of the mason jar lid.
  2. Add fake snow on top.
  3. Take half of a clear plastic ornament and glue around the edge, then place it on top of the mason jar lid.
  4. Add your gift items inside o the mason jar and tie a string/twine/ribbon around the lid to finish it off.

Christmas Countdown/Advent Calendar

Materials needed:

  • Magnetic Board (purchase at local craft store. Should be at least 20”x20”)
  • 25 Favor tins
  • Roll of magnets
  • Numerical stickers
  • Items to fill the favor tins

How to:

  1. Use the numerical stickers to number the tins 1 through 25.
  2. Determine placement of your tins – we did the shape of a Christmas tree.
  3. Place a magnet behind the tin so it stays in place. Optional: Glue the magnet to the tin.

Fill the tins with goodies.

Ornament Wall

Materials needed:

  • Plywood ornament shape (we purchased ours at Hobby Lobby)
  • Peel and Stick Wallpaper
  • Specialty paper in silver (we found corrugated paper at the craft store)
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • E6000 glue
  • Greenery/Pine pick
  • Ribbon

How to:

  1. Turn the ornament upside down onto back side of the peel and stick wallpaper and trace the ornament shape.
  2. Cut your ornament shape out of the peel and stick wallpaper.
  3. Peel the backing off the wallpaper and stick it to the plywood ornament.
  4. You can use a credit card or spatula to smooth out the surface so it is free of bubbles.
  5. Repeat this process with the silver specialty paper that becomes the ornament cap.
