How to Make Stencilled Jars by Vicki Chrisman

Okay... so here's the deal.  I'm pretty much in love with Hazel & Ruby Stencil Masks. lol Seriously.. oh my!  Like I said Fancy Pants is doing a swap with them this month so they were kind enough to send me some product.  Since I worked on my project for the Fancy Pants blog post and tried out the stencils.. my mind has been reeling on the things they could be used for.  ( again... their blog is full of inspiration).       I decided to make use of some old jars I had sitting around.

How to Make a DIY Reindeer Centrepiece by Cheryl Says

This holiday season, minimalism meets rustic with our Manzanita branch reindeer centerpiece composed of a vase, artificial snow and LED lights. Use our reindeer vase as a unique centerpiece for the table, or hang ornaments and small tags with the names of your guests and put it on display for a holiday party or gift exchange.

During the yuletide season, we tend to see a lot of pinecones, candles and ornamental bulbs used for decorating. The reindeer vase is fresh approach to your holiday setting. It’s inexpensive to create, extraordinarily simple to make and can be done in less 25 minutes.

Perfectionists need not apply—the brilliant thing about this DIY reindeer vase is that you don’t need patience or an expert craft record to make it picture perfect. When stringing the lights on your Manzanita branches, don’t worry about wrapping them impeccably. Because the LED lights are embedded in such a fine chord, casually strung lights will look ethereal in a low-light setting. The effect is magical!

How to Make Personalised Christmas Napkin Decorations by Sizzix

Here is a simple way of making Christmas table decorations in the shape of napkin holders.
