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.
I was so excited to see the new Halloween sizzix zombie die cut! They also have some other ghoulish monsters available. I decided to use the sizzix zombie and turn into a Halloween mason jar. I enjoy making holiday themed mason jars and I can’t wait make many home this Halloween season. One of the many reasons I enjoy using paper craft during the holiday season is because it can be easily stored or made again if it gets damaged. I do have two little kiddos and enjoy making crafts with me and paper crafts is something everyone can enjoy.
The first thing I did one I got my zombie sizzix die cut from Tim Holtz I believe, was take everything out from the package. It might seemed a little over whelming at first but it does come with basic instructions.
I used my big shot to do all the die cuts. I also used Tim Holtz line of kraft paper to do all the pieces.
Once everything was cut I looked over the instructions and started to glue everything together. I used pop up glue dots to make thing more dimensional.
I then needed something to help my zombie head stay standing. I took a piece of paper and folded it in half followed by also folding the ends. I then glue the ends together and to the zombie head.
Now I needed to do the base of the mason jar. I took paper and red felt with my hot glue gun and glued it to the base.
Ta-Da! You are now done!! You have the perfect zombie head to display with all you wonderful Halloween decor! Its time to make your very own sizzix zombie mason jar this Halloween.
