Tree in a jar


Hi all.  Will try and put a fair few  posts on before Christmas Day. My hubby calls me Stig of the dump. I am always collecting stuff, anything and everything. Had this vintage jar for a while. Brought some toadstool christmas tree baubles. Love these miniature trees what people are using to make scenes with their trains etc. got some tartan tags left over and a mini peg

Stuck as much as I could in this jar, bit tricky but long tweezers to hold everything really helped. Put a few buttons inside. Added a bottle top with paper stuck inside. Added glitter then stuck the jar lid on. Added tartan ribbon and twine for a bow. Hubby had the reindeer cut out spare, so gilded him with gold wax. The tartan star tag was painted with cream and sand paint, left to dry and gilded with gold wax. Gilded the mini peg too added a button, added a greeting, gilded of course, then tied on with twine. Hope you like this little jar.......
