A Good Use for old Crown Jars

A quick picture of one of the jars that I transformed for gifts this year. I made a few and they left my house like they were on fire, lol. I borrowed the idea from Shelly Hickox and worked with the supplies I had on hand. All scraps :). Some from the funkie junkie and some from CTMH, some just found objects......

See the link to Shelly's here for how to create your own. I used the kraft borders from CTMH a few years ago and pour silver glitter on the tacky side for the trim around the neck and base, crackle paint on the metal rim, pipecleaner for the hat (party hat on the cricut time to party cartridge ;)), the bells and the ribbon I believe were from the funkie junkie boutique, as well as the red twine and maybe the blue crackle paint. I know that I got some of it there and all of it is available :)
I filled mine with snowball cookies, marshmallows and hotchocolate, crafting supplies, whatever fit through the hole.

Next year I think I will try a snow globe effect.......

I think I will link this to the FrillyandFunkies Sunday share.
