Crafting Girls Night and Dollar Store Goodies

When our friend Becca invited us to a holiday craft night, I was pretty excited; I must admit this is one type of holiday get together I have always wanted to host myself! Her idea was to create some of these vintage mason jar snow globes inspired by these at the Anthropologie website:

I knew I wanted mine to go in Holly's  room because she has very little decorations for the holidays. So of course, Holly needs everything pink and sparkley! I decided to spray paint some dollar store nutcrackers and dip a bottle brush tree in turquoise paint :

The girls made some amazing jars, I admit I was jealous that I didn't make one in natural tones for my own decor!

Maybe I will just have to make some for myself another day. It was worth getting covered in pink paint to hear the squeal of delight when she discovered the jar this morning. Here's my nutcracker in all his glory surrounded by some lucite loveliness:

And may I just mention my dollar store find? A dollar each for these beautiful reindeer; which are (so far) resistant to the wrath of Holly:
A great start to Holiday decorating!
