Now is the time to start thinking about Christmas decorations. In the current climate, driver shortages are prospected to continue, and the demand is likely to outweigh the supply at this time of year. Homemade decorations are easy to make with our multi-purpose glass jars, and when you factor in the benefits of them being cost-effective, personal and customised to your taste, you will want to get started right away.
Let us give you some tips and tricks for this Christmas.
Make a Mini Christmas Tree
The beauty of the miniature Christmas tree is that it can add a seasonal touch to your home long before December, and the effect is so subtle that nobody can really debate their dislike of Christmas with you. The religious ritual of when you put up and dismantle your main Christmas tree can remain in place, but you can easily add some pine branches and cones to our glass jars while decorating the rest of the tree with baubles, as standard.
There is something very magical about a glittery snow globe that ignites our imagination in childhood and stays with us into adulthood.
All you need to do is flip the glass jar upside down with a twist lid firmly screwed on, after filling the contents with glued glitter on the sides and a pipe-cleaner made snowman in the centre, with tiny cuttings of paper collating at the bottom that look mounting snow.
Alternatively, you could use a black marker to draw the snowman scene on the outside of the glass jar for a surprisingly arty effect. If you have an artistic streak this is the perfect idea for you, and you can always use search engine results for inspiration.
There are numerous other ways in which you can get crafty with glass jars to make festive decorations your house and guests will love.
