Christmas is getting close, and if you’re in need of a last-minute decorating or centerpiece idea, I’ve got one for you! How about a little holiday village in a jar? It’s fast, easy, and can be replicated in so many different variations, it’s the perfect solution to all your holiday decorating conundrums.
Last week I did a little insta-story about how to put together this simple holiday decoration. If you don’t already follow me on Instagram, you totally should! I think you’d like me over there! I post and story more frequently than I write blog posts. It’s just more informal and so much fun to interact with the people who follow me!
Here is what you’ll need to create your own little holiday village in a jar:
- A jar. Try to find a jar with a larger diameter so that you can have plenty of room for the contents. I saw a bunch at Hobby Lobby that I thought were perfect.
- Fake Snow (mine is from Hobby Lobby)
- Contents for your little village. I suggest little bottle brush trees, an led house ornament, or a little car with a Christmas tree on top ornament
- Fairy lights (which are totally optional, but they are SO cute and add a little something extra.)
Now, I feel like this is all very self-explanatory, but just for fun, I’ll tell you how I created this guy. First, I put in some fake snow, then I placed the house ornament and trees, and last I stuffed the light in. You just have to kind of adjust all the pieces until it all fits in the jar without knocking into each other.
I found the perfect little spot for my village in a jar right by the front door. It looks so darn cute all lit up at night. 😉
Miss L. loves to flip these lights on and off. What is it about kids and switches? She’s really having a ball turning on alll the holiday lights and off in our house this year. She also thinks it’s hilarious to switch our Christmas tree lights from all white (my favorite) to colored (her favorite) when I leave the room.
That’s all I got, kids! I hope you have a great day! xo
