Day 2- A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2020

                  A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 2020 – Day 2

Thank you for joining me for my 12 Days of Christmas 2020.

If you missed Day 1- there will be a link to at the end of this post.

I’m so excited that my 12 Days of Christmas has begun. I usually try to stick to a theme each year, but this year I am going back to the basics of why I started my blog and that was to inspire you to make, bake, create and decorate. Over the next four weeks I will share some simple, easy and budget friendly ideas just in time for the holidays.

Day 2: Painted glass jar votive holder

For these cute little jars you will need:

  • two clean clear jars (lids optional)
  • acrylic paint (I used red and green)
  • vinyl stickers – you can make your own if you have a Cricut die cutting machine or purchase them from the $$ store. It doesn’t matter what color they are as you will remove them after you paint the jars
  • apply the stickers to the front of the jars and then apply two or three coats of paint over the outside of the jar including the sticker. Let dry completely and then remove the stickers from the jar.
  • Apply a coat of mod podge over the jars and let this dry completely. If you decide to use the lids of the jars you can also apply a coat of mod podge on the top of the jar and cover with a sprinkling of epsom salt. Let dry completely and your votive holders will be ready to use.

Well 2020 sure wasn’t what any of us expected. It’s been an interesting, strange, challenging, reflective and creative year for me.

During my reflective period I was thinking about what I wanted to do for my 12 Days of Christmas  2020 from A WandafulThing. I decided to go back to the roots of why I started this blog to begin with, to share my love of making, baking, creating and decorating. Over the next four weeks I will share some simple, easy and budget friendly ideas just in time for the holidays.

Be sure to subscribe to the blog so you don’t miss a single day or idea.  Day One is scheduled for Monday, November 09, 2020.

Day 5: O Christmas Tree Wall Hanging

O Christmas Tree Wall Hanging

While I was searching for the words to the song ‘O Christmas Tree’ I came upon an intriguing post that gave all the instructions for an O Christmas Tree wall hanging that was just a little bit different than simply printing out an image and inserting it into a frame.

It’s adorable, simple and inexpensive to make. Check out Ann’s Entitled Life here for the full instructions. You will need cardstock, a printer, cardboard, green yarn and a picture frame.

I wasn’t sure about the color of my frame until I put the print in it.  I really like the pale frame as it doesn’t distract from the green yarn tree.

I am thinking I might need to make two and give one away at Christmas.

Day 2: Canning Jar Lid Christmas Tree Wall Art

WELCOME TO DAY 2 OF MY 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS DECORATING, CRAFT AND GIFT IDEA Challenge.

I scored these lovely used and somewhat rusty canning jar lids at a local thrift store for 5 cents a piece.  I picked up the picture frame for free at the “Use It or Lose It” event (same place I picked up the vinyl records – re yesterday’s post).

My passion is to reuse or repurpose things in anyway I can.  A ton of my inspiration comes from fellow bloggers (who have fabulous ideas) and of course Pinterest. …
