The day after Thanksgiving is the official start of the Christmas season. Decorations go up, trees decorated, and gift shopping begins in earnest. Along with all of this wonderful activity is the lack of time to complete the projects and tasks we look forward to all year. Pinterest offers terrific ideas for holiday displays but sometimes what looks simple and easy is far more complicated than we want to tackle.
One activity that most people enjoy is crafting holiday decor. Some projects, though fabulous, take a lot of time and resources to carry out. This project is the opposite. It is easy, fast, and affordable. The best part? It looks professionally done and exquisite in any decor.
These holiday displays are effortless, quick, and look expensive. With a few items you can create a custom display to enhance your holiday decor. The apothecary jars are perfect for year-round storage and displays too.
Use the apothecary jars to display shells, corks, flowers, or another collectible. A cluster of these jars in varying heights and shapes creates an interesting an appealing display.
Let’s get started!
- Apothecary Jars – like these from Amazon
- Snow Flakes — found again at a local craft store.
- Holiday picks — Whatever style you like, poinsettia, birds, pine cones, little houses, etc.
- Wire cutters: like these from Amazon
Start by cleaning the apothecary jars with a glass cleaner and microfiber cloth.
Carefully pour snowflakes into each jar until the jar is about 1/3 full. In this demonstration, the smaller jars have 1 bag of flakes and the taller jar has 2 bags.
Using wire cutters, carefully cut the holiday pick a shorter length. Leave a short amount of the wire pick because it will help secure the accessory in the snow.
Add display items such as bird nests, pine cones, glitter balls, owls, or elves. Your display should reflect your taste and style as well as complimenting your holiday decor.
I’d love to see what you create with your Christmas Apothecary Jar Display. Perhaps snowmen? Santa? A small village? Anything goes!
