I fell in love with this Christmas jar while surfing Pinterest and I made my own version this year (sorry I don't have a photo. Remember, December was a blur).
I loved the way the jar looked, and I didn't want to give up the sparkly when I put the decorations away, so I got it in my head that I would have a year round holiday jar. I found the jar at Home Goods for $10. I love it. I spent a whole day running around looking for twig balls in a certain size. I ended up finding what I needed at At Home on my second, yes second, visit there in a single afternoon. It was worth the search because the balls and jar will be used as a consistent base throughout the year.
For January I have silver and gold beads running through. I got the beads at Party City and they came in a pack of four (gold, two silver and a black) for $3. There were cheaper beads but these caught more light and had a little more heft to them. I am sure they will be making more appearances throughout the year. I got a package of wooden numbers from Hobby Lobby for $2 and some gold Folk Art metallic paint.
Voilà! I am happy with it and looking forward to the upcoming months.
