Homemade Art: DIY Winter Wonderlands - Get your creative on!

October, 2016

09282016_210There’s only one secret to building a winter wonderland, and it costs nothing—a smile. In fact, just gathering our supplies put us in the holiday spirit. Finding those items was as easy as shopping the house and backyard. We used ornaments and wooden toys, bell jars and vases, pine cones and cedar boughs. Mostly, we used imagination. The results? Goosebumps! But don’t take our word for it. Happy crafting.

  1. Gather your supplies: a jar with a tight lid, an ornament and some sparkles.
  2. Glue the ornament to the inside of the lid with waterproof glue.
  3. Add sparkles to the jar, and fill with water, leaving an inch of room at the top.
  4. Screw on the lid tightly, shake and watch the snow fall.



Glass canisters from the pantry become beautiful centerpieces with the addition of a few pine cones and some cedar trimmings. Flameless candles make them worry-free.

Peel-and-stick snowflakes and lettering were all that were needed to transform this pretty cloche into a snowy wonderland.
