Canning Jar Decor

Carlene's is in a rustic pail.
The inspiration for my rustic canning jar came from Carlene at I saw this cute decoration that she made back in the Fall and knew that eventually I wanted to make one for Christmas. I found the candle at a local shop and went to work. I had the canning jar, some leftover fake snow, stuck a sprig of greenery in and a pinecone, sprinkled some more snow, put the candle in and voila, a cute, homey decoration for my kitchen.

Mine is in a basket, with a sprig of greenery, a pine cone, the battery operated  candle and
some faux snow, surrounded by mini ornaments.

Battery operated candle!

  12. This is very cute, Kitty! Don't you just love the creative spirit out there; especially this time of year? Canning jars are so versatile and I love using them myself for all sorts of things. I like the little Christmas Cheer blackboard sign too. Thanks so much for sharing this at my HOME and have a wonderful rest of the week, my friend.
