Merry Christmas Eve, friends!  It's here, are you ready?  :)  I have much to do after a bout of food poisoning had me in bed nearly all day yesterday.  :( 
When my sisters and nieces were visiting in November for our annual Christmas shopping trip I loved the holiday displays at Sears.  They had these huge jars turned upside down with sparkling trees inside with a layer of "snow".  I took a photo, as I'm prone to do when I see awesome inspiration, and new I wanted to try it on a smaller scale. 
This is what I came up with.

The SRM Winter Sticker Sentiments were the perfect addition!  After placing the stickers on the jar I used my stippling brush and 'pounced" some white in over them to give them a "frosty" appearance.

This is one of those projects that looks better in real life - I photographed it from every angle but just couldn't capture the magical feeling it has. 
Wishing you all good things this Christmas, thanks for stopping by!
