This was a super fast project. 
I already had the lantern and the trees. I found the little deer and a farm and ranch store.
I hot glued the trees and the deer to a piece of card stock I cut to size. It was easiest to place the glass chimney over them and then place the chimney in the lantern.
Once everything was in place, I added Epsom salts from the top to make it look like snow. 
When Christmas is over, it will be easy to dismantle and save for next year. 
This was a super fast project. 

This was a super fast project. 

This project only took about 20 minutes. It brings a smile to my face every time I look at it. 

Did you make this?

JunkArchitect writes: What a simple yet stunning creation! I need to follow your lead and not spend weeks on one project. Twenty minutes seems much more manageable.

Merry Christmas!

Be Well,
