Snow Globe Mason Jar Car

Last year, it was very popular to have a snow globe mason jar car with a Christmas tree. I was very happy with me version and excited to unpack it from my this Christmas. However, I had one little problem. I place it on its new home and it seemed to not stand out as much as I wanted too. I left it there for a couple of days and still it did not seem right. So what to do with my snow globe mason jar car?

Then it came to me, it needs light! I went to look in my stash to see what kid of light I could have hidden away. I found a light strand for decorating flowers.

I took the car out and wrapped the miniature Christmas tree with the lights. Sealed it up and it was all done!

It looks fantastic on my shelf with my kiddos Christmas photos.

I have another Christmas Tag #4!

I was inspired by fireplaces. I just love fireplaces but I’ve only had one once in my life and so wish to have one again. I enjoy decorating them and making them all festive during the holidays. I mostly used Tim Holtz material to make this faux fireplace Christmas tag.

Holiday Decorating with Mason Jars

One of the major holidays is on it way of course I am talking about Christmas which has been in much discussion after the whole Starbucks red cups. I am not against the red cups because I actually though they were very cute and since I don’t drink coffee I never knew they had snowflakes prior. Of course now I just want to go out and get a hot chocolate just so I can get a red cup but enough about the cups and lets talk about Christmas & Holiday decorating with mason jars. I love collecting mason jar and making new things with them for every holiday. I decided to do something simple for this holiday season especially since I have not started decorating yet due to I like to wait for Thanksgiving.

I found the beautiful stenciled mason jars at Target dollar bin from all places! They also have snowflakes but I found the Christmas sweater stencil more appealing.

I had tea light holders that I had previously purchased from my local craft store.

Ta-Da! You are done! Not much prepping and who would hate going to target to pick some mason jars.

Jack Skellington Mason Jar

Its the holiday to be spooky with Jack Skellington mason jar. I just love the movie and make Halloween seem that much closer. Every year I try to do different Halloween mason jar crafts and this year my home theme is Nightmare before Christmas. The story of nightmare before Christmas has long be debated if its a Christmas story or a Halloween one. I just believe it perfect for both holidays.

The first thing I did was use my cameo to cut out Jack’s face. I use a general silhouette I found online. Afterwards I remove the cut outs.

I then attached the vinyl to the mason and spray painted it white.

Once it was all dried I went a head and removed the vinyl.

I went shopping at my craft store and purchased a ribbon to match my Jack. I hot glued it on and now I have my Jack Skellington Mason Jar. Its super easy and looks great, however he does look a little lonely.  I might have just have to do a Sally to match. I will be having more Nightmare before Christmas inspired craft coming a long the way so stay tune. I do love Halloween!!

Mason Jar Easter Crafts

Easter is around the corner and if you need a last minute craft for your little one then I have what you want. I made a Mason Jar Easter Crafts with a few things I got from Target dollar bin. Of course every time I stop by Target I shop the dollar bin and their clearance section and I always find something I had my eye on that just happened to be on clearance. I do believe we are all a little guilty of that, right?

You will need a  mason jar, spray paint and hot glue gun.

Easter crafts. crafts, kids crafts, craft, diy, tutorial, mason jar, Easter mason jar

The first thing you will need to do is spray paint he lid of the Mason jar Easter Crafts. Then you want to gather all the Target goodies from the dollar bin.

You will need to spray paint the wooden bunnies as well with white spray paint.

I then went a head and hot glued the ears and tale. I removed the clips from the hears to be able to hot glued them on.

Its a fun little project to do with the kiddos and so cute to have on your counters. I love working with mason jars and I try to use them as much as I can in any craft project. If you have a few mason jars just laying around then go a head and give it a try!

Happy Easter and hope you all find many Easter eggs this season!

Stay crafty,

Mason Jar Christmas Snow Globles

It would not be Christmas with some Mason jar decor. Here are my mason Jar Christmas snow globes. I love mason jars and I have a lot of them hidden under my bed. I being seen a lot of people using them with cute little vintage cars and placing tiny Christmas trees on top with bakers twine. I was not able to find any vintage toy cars. They seem to be very popular and prices for them seem to be ridicules. So I went in search for this cars in toy store. I could not find one anywhere. I thought I had tried everything until I went grocery shopping at Ralph and guess what I found?! The perfect car toys. They are a little large but they fit perfectly inside the mason jars! You always find things in the most unexpected places.

Baby Girl Birthday Theme Party

My little girl’s birthday was this past weekend and I can’t believe how fast time flies. I was of course going a mile a minute trying to get things done last minute but it was all worth. I was especially thankful to have good friends and family to share this wonderful day. I was able to use my wood stand to place my baby girl’s cupcakes which my mother in-law made. I also used part of my Christmas decor to flow over the the party table. As you can see my little snowflakes hanging from the ceiling.

I also wanted the cups to all that extra touch. I used mason jars and I placed wooden medallions with deer attached to it and place them around the mason jar.  My hubby and I made the invitation for this special day.

Christmas Mason Jar Nutcracker

Its that time again of the year where you have to take out the Christmas tree and unpack all the ornaments well at least in my house. Now that I really think about it we have never had a real Christmas tree. Living in apartments it has always made sense to have a fake tree, even if my hubby does have bring it up from the garage. I enjoy decorating for Christmas and this year is not any different.

Mason jar, christmas mason jar, mason jar nutcraker, tutorial, diy,

I’ve been in the look out for Christmas decoration and inspiration when I go to the stores. I am always very surprised how early they start putting up all the decorations. Its was not even close to Halloween and everything was on sale and a few Christmas stuff were on the shelf. So I decided to start my Christmas crafts early.

Mason jar, christmas mason jar, mason jar nutcraker, tutorial, diy,

I began with a Christmas Mason Jar Nutcracker. I found the nutcracker at Michale’s once known as the $1 bins and got a few of the nutcrackers.

I then took a mason jar and spray pained the lid gold and hot glued the nutcracker to the lid.

Mason jar, christmas mason jar, mason jar nutcraker, tutorial, diy,

I added fake snow to the inside of the jar. You cant have Christmas with out a little snow. Especially since I live in Cali and it not a place where snow is very common at least not where I live.

Mason jar, christmas mason jar, mason jar nutcraker, tutorial, diy,

I have another Christmas Mason Jar ready for the holidays. I may actually have a good collection this year.

Happy Holidays,

Halloween Mason Jar Ghost

Ghost are one of the frightful things during Halloween. I decided to make my own tortured soul ghost and place him in my mason jar for safe keeping. I used little things around the house.  I sometimes get very surprise what you can come up with when you are in need of it. I love making Halloween mason jar every year. I always want to top the year before mason jar.

I have wooden skewer and for the life of me I could not find them anywhere. I own two different size skewers and I could not find one of them in my craft closet. Some might say maybe I have too many crafts but I just think maybe I just need to reorganize it. hehe. I had a dilema of what to use to get my littl ghost head stand up. I then saw my son juice box straw and light bulb went off. I used the straw and attached it to a small foam ball. The foam ball I found seemed to have gotten a little bit beat up. I believe at one time my son might have gotten his hand on it at one time or other.

mason jar, Halloween decor, mason jar DIY, Mason jar ghost, crafts, DIY,

I hot glued the straw to the lid. I used cheese cloth to cover the foam ball. I made eyes and a mouth with a black sharpy.

I added a tea light to add a glow to my little Halloween mason jar ghost.  It fits perfectly with my Halloween decor.

Disney Mason Jar

I have recently become a huge Disneyland fan. I have never being to Disney as a child only as an adult and I just love it! I keep spoiling my kiddos by going at least twice a week. Now that we live in Cali we got an annual pass. I remember my hubby face when he saw how much the annual passes were and told me that it better be worth it. Guess what I’ve gone 23 times in the last 29 days! How I manage that?! I really don’t know.  I just know that I love going and experiencing something new every time. As you can imagine I have a lot of keepsakes and plenty of mason jars just laying around the house. I decided to make my own little Disney mason jar keepsake.

You will not need a lot to make this Disney mason jar keepsake.  As you can guess you will need a mason jar with a large mouth.

disney, disneyland, disney mason jar, keepsake, disney button pin, disney pin button

I did spray paint the lid gold. You won’t need the inside lip of the mason jar once you get your first button from Disneyland. I got the Disney pin the first time we went Disney which just happens to fit the top of mason jar.

disney, disneyland, disney mason jar, keepsake, disney button pin, disney pin button

I went ahead and added all the wonderful things we found at Disney. I place the different maps from each location. My kiddos got some gold doubloons over at Disney Junior theater and paper strings. I even made a mason jar just for the pin button that are given out at Disneyland. I also painted the lid of the mason jar gold to match. Now I have two mason jar keepsakes for our Disneyland adventures.

 

Happy Haunting,

Halloween Pumpkin Mason Jar

Mason Jars are very popular and you can just about do anything with them! I decided to make another Halloween inspired mason jar crafts. I made a Halloween pumpkin mason jar. It only took me about 30 minutes to make and Halloween pumpkin mason jar craft and it gave me the perfect excuse to buy candy corn early.

Halloween craft, Halloween mason jar, halloween pumpkin mason jar, diy

The first thing I did was take the lid of the mason jar and hot glue batting to it, by doing this I make sure it does not go all over the place while trying to cover it with fabric. At times batting can be very slippery.

Halloween craft, Halloween mason jar, halloween pumpkin mason jar, diy

I then got pumpkin fabric to cover the batting which I also hot glued to the lid of the mason jar. I made sure to pull the fabric tight around the lid.

On the top of the mason jar I hot glue to little pieces of sticks. I do believe this helps makes it look more like a pumpkin.

Finally I got candy corn pumpkins and original candy corn and placed them inside the jar. Of course I did notice a few missing and a little boy grinning with mischief.

If you noticed I spray painted the lid gold. Gold is the color this year and I could not help but paint it gold which looks way better than the silver lid.

I hope to make many more Halloween inspired mason jar this season. What do you think I should make now?! Stay tune for more.
