Today’s decorating is from my daughter. She’s always had a knack for creativity, and this is no exception. With a few leftover pieces from her own Christmas Wreath, she created this beautiful eye-catcher.
This lightbulb-shaped glass container has a flat bottom so it can stand anywhere. It also has a screw-on cap.
- A lighbulb-shaped (or other small) glass container
- Small pieces of Christmas decor (bits leftover from other projects work great!)
- Cinnamon sticks
- Burlap strips
- Hot glue gun
Simply remove the cap from the container, gently fill with your cinnamon and decorative bits, and recap. Then, take two strips of burlap. Fashion one into a bow. Shape the other into a ring to fit the container and glue them together, then slip them over the neck of the container.
Because the glass is reflective, this makes a great decor near candles or the Christmas tree. It can be used as an individual item or placed on the table-top for those holiday dinners.
This craft costs less than $5 and takes less than five minutes. Now that’s a great holiday deal any way you look at it!
And Frankly, My Dear . . . that’s all she wrote!
