This past Monday, I shared my Halloween in a jar. You can see that post here. Today, it’s Christmas!
To make this jar, you will need the items on the supply list below and our fine-tip glue. I’ll give you a quick run down on how to assemble this.
- Start by stamping and die cutting all your pieces for the inside of the jar. You will need one house and two of the smaller trees. One the trees, cut off the bottom third of the tree.
- In the center of the jar lid, glue down the tree using a dimensional. Or you could use a hot glue gun. Add several of the faceted gems to the tree using fine-tip glue. The gems are adhesive, but they don’t stick to the tree really well. You want to give time to dry before assembling the jar.
- Cut a piece of the pattern paper 1.75 x 3.5″. This is your base for the background.
- On the far right side, add your taller tree flat to the pattern paper. Then add the house on top with dimensionals.
- On the left side, add the shorter tree with dimensionals.
- On the back of your pattern paper add a glue dot on the bottom two corners. I found this helped keep it in place when putting the lid back on. If you look closely, there is a seam in jar and you’ll want your pattern paper to line up with the seam on the one side.
- Before you put the jar back on the lid, you’ll add in the fake “snow” and the glitter sequins loose in the jar lid.
- Once your jar is assembled, add a strip of ribbon around the lid. Then cut a second piece of ribbon to tie a bow and glue down using either glue dots or a hot glue gun.
- For the top of the jar, die cut a Gray circle, then stamp and die cut “The Magic..” circle and add with dimensionals on top of the gray circle. Adhere the circle to the jar using dimensionals or a hot glue gun.
So, what do you think? Which jar is your “jam”? Halloween or Christmas? I can’t promise I’ll have a Fall jar ready next week, but I’m thinking about making one. We’ll see if I can find things small enough to fit in the tiny jar.
