Making Holiday Vignettes

Holiday VignettesIn my mind there are really just two categories of DIY: useful and fun. Useful is when you save $500 on a new dresser by hacking an inexpensive Ikea piece. Fun is, well, the stuff that makes you feel good and RELAXED after a long day…the kind of projects you can combine with a little Netflix and wine if you so desire.

And that’s exactly what I’m here to share today! A feel good craft.

Holiday Vignettes Supplies:
glass domes or bell jars (I got mine at Hobby Lobby with the 40% off coupon from their site)
-whatever fun holiday items you want! I got mini paper houses that light up, bottle brush trees, glittery snow, white sequins, and most importantly, these awesome LED fairy lights.

Holiday Vignettes I used a piece of white card stock to cover the bottom of the wood base. This is how I “measured” it, and then I just cut the circle out with scissors and glued all the trees and snowflakes to the card stock. SUPER simple. And when the holidays are over, it will be easy to clean and remove this stuff and throw it in a bag for next year. Then you can still use these bell jars around the house for other seasons!

Holiday Vignettes Adding the LED lights is the best and prettiest part! I love how the fine wires almost disappear visually. They look even prettier in the low light at night.

Holiday Vignettes I put my jars in the center of my breakfast table. I really love how they add a little holiday cheer to our (very) lightly decorated space.

The whole project took me less than an hour. So if you’re in need of a fun holiday craft that doesn’t take too much time or too many supplies, try this one. 🙂 Next stop, Christmas cookies! xx- Elsie
