Christmas in a glass15:52
Christmas is just around the corner and I still haven't put up my Christmas tree. But I did make a little Christmas decoration in a big glass. I wanted to share with you or anyone who doesn't have a lot of space and still wants to have some nice Christmas spirit in the room. This would be perfect for student homes ;). It's super easy and looks really nice.
What you'll need for this is some sort of glass and salt to represent the base inspired by snow. I used fine sea salt, which worked great, because it still had some texture to it. Regular kitchen salt may be too fine to look like a real snow. You'll also need candle. I used a tea candle, but depending on how big your glass is, you can use bigger candles. Then, you'll just need some Christmas ornaments, greens or any other decorations. What ever reminds you of Christmas.
I used a pretty big glass, which I think is supposed to be used for decorations or for flowers. I filled it almost to the top. Then I added tea light on one side. I used some green plants (from my garden bushes) and just stuck them into one side of the glass. I also added gold and red Christmas tree ornaments. I decided to add some pine cones, stars and sugar cane. I just used all the tings that I already had at home. So this can cost you nothing, or very little if you decided to buy those things. Very cheap project.
And that is how it looks like in the end. Very easy, stick-all-christmas-thing-in-one-glass kind of decoration. I really like how it looks like you put a lot of effort in it, when in fact you can make this in 5 minutes. Maybe, this can also be last minute Christmas gift ;).
Do you make new Christmas decorations every year?
