Ohhh it feels soo long since I crafted something. I hope to get back into my crafting soon now that I will be home for the holidays. My co-worker had so many mason jars lying around her home. She thought of me to rid them! Ohhh lucky me! I drink my water and tea out of mason jars and this gave her an idea I may want these mason jars. Anything glass goes for me and a mason jar is just oh so perfect. For the first time I have seen a wide mouth mason jar. Woahhh..what was I going to do with this?? As it sat there on my counter for a few days I was saddened time passed and Christmas is almost near with no decor in the house. Soooo…the pine stems and pine cones lying all over my back balcony. PERFECT–I thought. I will make a decor for my desk. Quite simple and quick.
1] I used the pine stems to surround the rim of the mason jar. I held it in place with a rubber band. Tuck the pine stems underneath the rubber band.
2] Spray paint the pine cones gold. Let it dry for 5 minutes outside to relieve the fume of the spray paint.
3] Gather some more pine stems and place them inside at the bottom of the mason jar.
4] Place your gold pine cones in the jar and Viola! Desk decor for the Christmas festive. I added a naked tree branch with a couple of initials ornaments . Decorate as you desire!
Time to go relax some more and recover from my long 2 weeks in Florida. ENJOY!! Happy Sunday.
