lights in a jar

lights in a jar 2

I found some tiny battery-powered lights this Christmas; I put them in a decorative jar & I think they look magical.



Xmas ball mobile


This is the mobile I made using clear & silver xmas balls & fishing wire.
I love it so much that I leave up all year round.

snowy nutcracker


I love toy soldier nutcrackers but couldn’t find any that were “just right” so I bought a cheap one & spray painted it with white primer. Then I sprayed it with adhesive & sprinkled clear glitter on it. It came out better than I could have imagined. I think it looks like snow & it catches the light beautifully.


MY TIP:   For best results be sure to use a nutcracker without any hair or fabric.
