Christmas in a Can-ister...

Before
I was drawn to their metal lids.
After
I decided to lay them on their sides and give them a little Christmas cheer...fake snow and some sheet music.
A little more embellishment...and done.



Of course Jingle Bells needed some jingle bells :)
I think these will be cute tucked in on shelves here and there...kind of like a sign in a bottle.
I also found this one with a cork lid...which inspired some more cheer.

Yes, I'm thinking Christmas...between some centerpieces I did last weekend at church and making goodies to sell at the shops, I'm getting in the mood for some holiday spirit.
When I spotted these glass canisters at the thrift store, I decided to lay them on their sides and add a little "Christmas cheer".  Tis the season...well almost :)
So how about you?  Are you getting into the Chritmas spirit?  Or are you holding out???

Everyone else in line was looking at them and wanting to know what I was going to use them for. Oh and they were 99 cents each :). Thanks for sharing! Posted: 3:31 pm on December 6th

It will be done soon and added to the goodie basket which I will present to my friends and family to select gifts from. Thanks for sharing. Posted: 7:12 pm on November 14th
