Okay, so it isn’t Christmas quite yet (or maybe it is by the time you are seeing this for the first time), but it is worth adding to the collection, and having a plan for a cute idea in advance.

Materials

  • Baby food jars, or mason jars if you want to make a supersized version (and if you do, send us photos).
  • Tiny ornaments
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks.
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Nail and hammer, or a drill and drill bit.

You could really put anything you want on the top. My mum has some mistletoe and berries on top of hers. I opted for a simple bow. The trick with the bow, to make it easier to sit nicely, is to just make 2 loops and then with a separate piece of material wrap it around the center. -Meghan
