First off, Happy Thanksgiving this week everyone!!! I hope everyone has a fun day with fun traditions!! I absolutely love Thanksgiving day. It is a special day for me to reflect about how many blessings I have and all the things I have to be Thankful for!
Now on to today's craft. I am so excited to be decorating for Christmas!! I love this holiday!!! I am so excited to be showing you my first Christmas decoration for this year!
I am going to be showing you to make cute Dollar Store Christmas Vases. You read it right...I got just about everything at the Dollar Store!!!!! We went there a few weeks ago and I decided to really look around to see everything they have there now. I seriously can't believe all that they have, especially in the craft section!! I am going to be checking them out FIRST when I am buying stuff for crafts. One thing in particular that I was happy about was styrofoam! They have styrofoam wreaths, blocks, and balls. So much cheaper to buy those things there then at an actual craft store!!
Here is what we are going to be using for todays vases:
When I said I got just about everything at the Dollar Store...the only thing I didn't get there was the ornaments. I got them at Wal-Mart.
**I did not end up using the BIG ornaments in these vases. I just used the little ones**
-3 vases (I got 2 little ones the same and then 1 big one. They have lots of different choices)
- 1 pkg. Decorative Container Filler (which is just little foam balls)
- 2 things of Glitter Curly Ting. I only have 1 pictured. I decided in the end I wanted another in there. (This I was the most surprised about- that it was at the Dollar Store. I love this for decorating!)
- I pkg. Christmas ornaments. Like I said above, this is the only thing I didn't get at the Dollar Store. I got them at Wal-Mart.
To start, I went to my cricut to cut out some words. I wanted to use the phrase "Peace and Joy." I cut the words out in white vinyl. For the Peace I used Monster Paparazzi found HERE. For And I cut going up and down in the font His Name is Honey found HERE. For Joy, I used the font Pea Ashley Rose found HERE. Then I applied them on the vases. Here is what it looks like...
Next came the fun part...getting to fill them!!!! In the two little vases I used the decorative container filler. I filled them both to the top with it.
The big vase I put the glitter curly ting and ornaments in.
Now we are all done!! SUPER EASY, RIGHT?!?
Here are a few pictures of these Cute Christmas Vases all done...
