Christmas is quickly approaching so I have three quick tutorials for you to get ready for the holidays. These three diys are from my video, which you can watch right here:
Make sure that you watch the video for extra clarification but I will also explain how I made all of the diy’s down below!
- Glass Jar/ Terrarium
- Mini Bottle Brush Trees
- Glitter/Ornament Flakes
- Battery Powered Fairy Lights
- First make a base for the trees out of cardstock if you don’t want to glue them directly onto the jar
- Figure out the arrangement for the trees and hot glue them onto the cardstock
- Decorate the bottom of the cardstock base with glitter
- Tape the base to the bottom of the jar and use the ornament flakes to blend it into the jar
- Wrap the fairy lights around the trees and stick the battery pack outside of the jar and you’re done!
MERRY CHRISTMAS GARLAND:
- Thick Floral Wire
- Thin Christmas Garland
- Write out the word that you are going to make, just make sure that none of the letters are too close together
- Straighten out the wire and use it to shape out all of the letters
- Finish off the metal base and then just hot glue the middle of the garland onto the wire leaving about a foot of extra garland hanging off each side
- And you’re done!
Clay Christmas Trees:
- Mini Wooden Rounds
- Air Dry Clay
- White Acrylic Paint
- Knead the clay to make it softer and then roll it out to about 1/2 inch thick
- Use a christmas tree printout or cooker cutter to cut out the shapes of your trees
- Let them fully harden and then sand all of the edges to make it look neater
- If your trees look a bit dirty like mine did then give them a couple coats of white acrylic paint
- Coat them all with modpodge
- For some of them I also mod podged one of the sides with glitter
- Let them fully dry again
- Hot glue two of the wooden rounds together for each base of the tree
- Hot glue the bottom of each tree onto the bases and you’re done!
And that’s it for all of the diys! Don’t forget to check out my VIDEO if you want to see more details on how to make these.
