I wanted to squeeze in one last project for myself this holiday season so I went with an easy one. I see tons of great jars all the time at ARC and decided to use some to create winter scenes. I found some interesting ones at my local ARC that I thought would work well.

My next step was to round up some winter miniatures. I had a tiny ceramic deer from ARC and a toy car that I painted to cover up the racing stripes. On the miniature car I glued a small tree and then wrapped a piece of twine around it.

This went into one of my smaller jars with a little bit of fake snow and that was it—done!

The deer was slightly more complicated, but only slightly, because I wanted to use a taller jar that I found at ARC with a large cork on top. I was able to glue a taller tree to the bottom just using my hands, but to get the deer and another smaller tree glued in, I had to use tweezers.

Once everything was glued in it got a dusting of fake snow and then it was complete.

Both of these jars turned out great with my supplies from ARC and were so unbelievably simple. I hope your holiday crafting turns out just as well!
