christmas jars


My first little project I wanted to share was my pretty Christmas jars. I have sort of had an obsession this Christmas with anything bottlebrush - trees, wreaths, etc. It all started with a bottlebrush wreath that I bought at my favorite store in Utah, The Busy Biddy. I began looking at tons of pictures from different blogs and then became offically crazy.
With this project, I really just wanted to do something super simple (obviously these little jars and trees could be totally bedazzled) that just showed off mini bottlebrush trees covered in snow.
I found all of my trees at Hobby Lobby for super cheap. When I bought them they were green. I came home and gave each of them a nice soak in some hot water and bleach. I let them soak for about 30 mins. Then I rinsed each one throughly to get off any additional bleach. I let them dry overnight. Once dried, I sprayed each tree with a little snow spray that I also got at Hobby Lobby, called "Snow" and sprinkled with a touch of glitter. I gathered all the glass jars around the house that I could, poured in a little sugar for snow, placed in the tree and ta da...pretty little Christmas jars. Super simple, but very soft and pretty.
