Snowy Christmas Jar

Good day to all, and thank you for stopping by Leisure Lane for a visit. I am always happy to see and hear from you.

A friend requested a Christmas themed mason jar, as she liked her autumn jar so much. I thought this was a perfect day to do it – the sun was shining (we haven’t had too much of that lately), and the air is was cool and crisp. It felt more like early autumn in “normal” places, and the scene gave me hope for a white Christmas 😉 – one lives on hope in southeast Texas.

I had two crackled prepped jars left over from May, so I used one for this project. I used craft paint for the the snowy scene – a simple snow covered fir with a cardinal adding star to its top. It has a quiet and calm effect, I think. She asked that I add some wintery filler, so I chose berries and pine cones. I think I’d like one, myself, so I guess I know what I’ll be doing with the last prepped jar ;).

I hope this inspired you to craft some Christmas magic. I’d love to hear what you’re doing. Just leave a comment telling me all about any projects you’re working on, and…

Until next time, may happy days abound!
