diy christmas in a jar

hello folks!
hey how was your turkey day?
ours was quiet with crazy days 
before and after full of christmas decorating,
 shopping, party prepping and...
boring laundry.

boring laundry is all season long.

anyway, i looove this time of year. 
wouldnt you just love to jar it up and 
keep it all year long?
like christmas in a jar?
well sure!

 let's do it.
nothing really new to this craft but i made 
SEVEN of these and each one was different.

here is the inevitable tute for 
one of the ones i made.
add a styrofoam block and a small dowel.
also ribbon and a tag if you want.

i hate when that happens...
no actually i love it cuz it means i am outta 
this season long heat full of laundry here at home in FL. 
bend it so it conforms to the side of the jar 
if needed for curve-sided jars.
use glue to secure if you want.

then that's it!
i added a homemade tag and ribbon to spruce things up.
and no, it's not "to and fro"
as there is an "m" under that leaf.

and here is an official pinterest picture 
if you care to make me happy...ha :>P
you guys oughtta make one.
they're so fun and can be individualized to whatever 
you find at michael's or whatever craft store 
that has black friday deals like i found 
or just use regular ole year round coupons 
and skip all the crazy ads that hog up 
your emails lately.
here's to more crafty christmas craziness ahead!
