 DIY Christmas Ornaments

I am so happy to be joining Rachelle from My Hubbard Home for another series of seasonal holiday blog hops. The weekly hops will be a part of the Let’s Get Festive Christmas Blog Hops

When it came time for my Halloween tablescape, I thought of little black lanterns for a spooky feel.  By dressing up the little lanterns, I turned spooky lanterns into snowy lanterns ready to light the way on a dark winter night.  A can of snow spray is the magic!  This one came from the dollar store, it is temporary and can be washed off.  If you want something permanent, check out the project links at the bottom of this post.  Give your little lanterns a coating of the spray snow, as much as you would like.  this is one snowstorm that you get to control!  Select a branch of icy looking holly leaves.  Use wire cutters to snip the leaves off of the plastic stems.  Select some faux evergreen picks.  Use the wire cutters to trim the needles off of one side or the evergreen at the base as shown.  Use hot glue to attach a holly leaf to the top of the lantern.  Layer two more holly leaves to the top of your lantern one at a time with hot glue. Use hot glue to attach the evergreen (doing so where you have trimmed the needles) to the holly leaves and add a couple of faux berries.  Add a battery operated tea light and your lantern is ready to hang on your tree!  To make it easy to light up your lanterns, get some tea lights that are operated with a remote and you can light them all at once, no matter where they are hanging on your tree!  You can decorate these any way you would like, personalizing them, adding ribbon, etc.
