Believe Jars....

Hi Bloggerettes!  Oh my, but have you noticed there is so much inspiration here in Blogland. Looking at all of the Christmas and holiday decor keeps me in a state of wanting to add and change everything in my home!  Somebody help me....  my creative senses are on overload and my head is exploding from looking at all the wonderful stuff that you  create.  Sometimes I see an idea so wonderful that I have to leave my computer and check to see if I have what I need to create a similar look!  LOL!

All this sensory overload led me to creating  these.....little "believe" jars filled with snow and bottle brush trees.

These are so much fun to make.  Just take a glass container, add some epsom salt, some Martha Stewart tinsel glitter and little trees and beads.  I printed out the word "believe" and it seems like the perfect finishing touch!

This one was inspired by the mermaid ornament that I had.
A glittered shell and some shell garland is just what it needed.

This one is my favorite.  It just sparkles and glistens...

Now, will y'all stop it with the creativity already.....I need a break!!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

So pretty Sissie. I'm just like you wanting to do everything lol. I keep having to rein myself in thanks for sharing your lovely believe jars.

Hi Sissie! I don't think my comment made it through, but i just wanted to let you know how beautiful all of your decorations are. The feathers... stunning! The greens in the kitchen... perfect and you snow globes... beautiful! I just love it all! I hope you are feeling better, I have felt like I am coming down with the yucks all day. ugh. Too much to do to be sick right now.
Have a wonderful weekend!

What a wonderful, beautiful idea! I love that you can use just about any type of jar too. Thank you for sharing!

Christine @ Stonehouse Living said...

Hi Sissie,

Love the little message inside, what a great idea!
I have some new crown jars that I recently found out thrifting around town... This is on my list of things to do, that seems to be getting longer & longer everyday.
So much inspiration!!!
Have a great weekend!
All the Best,

Claudia said...

These are so lovely and magical, Sissie. I'm about to do the same sort of thing with a vintage jar I found. I've been planning on doing it for a week or so, but I have to get Epsom Salts! Today I will do it, I promise. The addition of Believe is the perfect touch.


Lisa said...

I love your believe jars!~ I'll bet they are selling quickly in your shop! Your home looks beautiful as always! Love the angel wings on the chairs & the whole table! That little cubby you put in the shop....I am nuts for that! I have cubbys & little cabinets all over my house. I know that baby will be gone soon! Hope your having a great holiday season so far.

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

Oh Sissie~Now you have inspired me to make some of those myself!!! Yay, I think I will put them on the piano with my feather tree~they are so pretty. How do you make that believe sign look so faded and worn? I have yet to ever print out anything on my computer printer like that? Is there an easy way to do it??

Honey at 2805 said...

These are so pretty and such a sweet idea, Sissie!
And you look so cute and cuddly in the white fur!

Dorthe said...

Wish you a beautiful week-end.

Sares said...

These are magical! I may have to make some with words of inspiration as well. I know what you mean about sensory overload. I think the Christmas season needs to be longer so we have longer to implement all these marvelous ideas!


Hi Sissy, I love your "believe" jars they are so cute! I know what you mean about sensory overload I feel the same way. I wish we could slow things down and make the season last a bit longer. Merry Christmas Sissy!

NanaDiana said...

Sissie-That is one of the cutest ideas I have seen. I just LOVE those little trees. They make something small sooo special. Great idea~!xo Diana

blessedmom's simple home said...

These are so pretty Sissie, and not too hard either! I want to make some. I have the salt, but I'll have to get the glitter. Did you get it at Michael's?
Thanks so much for this sweet idea.

Riet said...

Gorgeous, just gorgeous those filled bottles. I love them and I am going to see what I have in the house to make something like that.
Have a beautiful Sunday
