Hi everyone~ I have been working on a little craft which I would like to share with you.
Somewhere on the 'Net I saw something similar to what I'm about to show you.
I found these s/p shakers at the Dollar store and the trees I found at Michaels.
I cleaned the shakers in the dishwasher and let air dry. I painted the tops white and sprinkled glitter on them.
Then I applied hot glue to the bottom of the wee tree and used tweezers to glue into the bottom of the bottle.
Epsom salts make wonderful snow which I sprinkled in around the tree. I gave this one to my DIL who squealed in delight over it!
I also took a bigger jar and a bigger tree and basically did the same thing. I used a sheer ribbon and some raffia to tie around the cover and tied on a little JOY tag. Then I brushed on a little glue to the top and sprinkled on some glitter to make it look frosted.
I am still looking for tinier shakers and if I cannot find any I will wash out my own and use those.
I think the trees would be even cuter in a smaller bottle.
Are you working on any crafts yet?
Keeping Christmas in my heart all year round~ Sandi
