Here it is ... My Christmas Jar Guest Post!

Here is my guest post from yesterday you can find over at Blissful and Domestic!

Hello Everyone! I'm Jennifer from Dainty Posies and I am SO excited to be here at Blissful and Domestic! Thank you, Danielle for letting me guest post!

I love all of Danielle's ideas to save money so I thought I would share a cute Christmas craft that costs very little! So here it is ....

A multi-purpose Christmas Jar! I recently read the book Christmas Jars and I LOVED it! So naturally I wanted our family to start our own Christmas Jar and this is what I threw together! Here's how to make your own! All you need is:

a jar (I used spaghetti but you can use ANY kind you want)
bells (mine are medium sized)
lace (or ribbon)
spray paint (I used oil rubbed bronze)

First things first: spray painting your bells is totally optional! I saw a lot of cute Christmas bells that would have worked great but I had it in my head to do oil rubbed bronze so I went with that :)
-After I spray painted the bells I strung the together on the twin like this so they would group together:

-It's really just the beginning of how you tie your shoe but pulled tight
-Set aside and then wrap your burlap and lace around the jar
 -Last, wrap your bells around the jar and tie in back
Drop a tea light in there aaaaaand you're finished! Easy peasy! This would also be cute with Christmas ribbon but I just wanted to keep it simple :)

 I can't wait to start using this for our Christmas Jar change! Thanks, again to Danielle for letting me share this with everyone! If you get a chance, hop on over to Dainty Posies and visit me! I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!
