Mason Jar Challenge... Peace on Earth and a Merry "JUNKOLIDAY"!

Dreamy on a mantle, but lots of other possibilities too. 7 Mason jar lids of varying sizes, were mounted to a salvaged barn board. Each letter was decoupaged with pages from a vintage, French lesson book and the edges were distressed. Wire toggles were made to suspend each wooden letter inside the jars, they appear to be floating. The large end jars house vintage bottle brush trees in a fluff of "snow". There is also a bit of fluffy snow in each letter jar. Salvaged, vintage cabinet knobs were added to the tops (technically the "bottoms") of each jar for a bit of added whimsy. A fun project completed in the studio today with the help of a very sweet young lady... 12 year old Victoria B. The only thing better than creating a special holiday treasure is creating it with someone you Love!
