Hello all! I’m sharing what I am pretty sure is my favorite Christmas-y thing this year so far. I might just love it more than my Christmas mantel or my sun room all decorated for Christmas! It’s little and cute and sort of vintage-y and I just adore it. It’s so funny how very often, the little tiny things steal my heart the very most. Might also have a little something to do with the cheap & easy factor. This has that going on for sure!
If you want to make a
Mason Jar Candy Cane Christmas Craft too, then come on…
This little qt is easy to recreate!
YOU WILL NEED:
1. A Dollar Tree Mason Jar (a Ball, pickle or spaghetti sauce jar works too!)
2. Dollar Tree Candy Cane Sticks
4. Glitter, Mica or something sparkly
5. Mod Podge (or white glue) and Craft Brush (you can even use your fingers!)
6. Pinch Of Ribbon (I used red velvet from Michael’s value bin)
7. Chalkboard Tag (mine is Martha Stewart for Staples)
You could substitute craft paper, sheet music or whatever you’ve got on hand for a tag/embellishment.
8. Chalk or Chalk Marker
9. Glue Gun (now you KNOW I used my glue gun somewhere. hahaha)
10. Spray Glue
Optional: Christmas movie, Christmas music or Christmas in your heart.
Okay! Let’s get started.
-First thing you’ll do is lightly coat the inside of the lid with Mod Podge.
-Then, have a cotton ball all opened up and fluffed into a circular shape, set on glue to cover lid and press down.
– Next, spray glue onto cotton and shake on glitter.
– Set aside.
– Next, follow the same steps to add the “snowy mound” on the top of the jar.
– This covers the stamped design on the jar, and it looks cute too!
– Lightly shake or blow off any excess glitter.
Now you are ready to add your candy canes.
– Gently place them inside and screw lid on, keeping as upright as possible.
– Slowly upright the jar.
– Cut appropriate length of ribbon to encircle the jar lid ring.
– Secure with glue gun.
North Pole Tag.
– Add chalkboard tag and add “North Pole” text.
– Secure with string or ribbon. (I used red embroidery floss, it’s what I had on hand.)
I got my chalkboard tags pre made at Staples, but I’ve seen them all over. You could even make a completely different tag and give it your own spin. Sheet music, scrap book paper, a chalkboard painted piece of cardboard or card stock could work too. There are no crafting rules. Make it your own!
I added my “North Poles” to my Christmas decorations in the sun room.
