Our little Humane Society is have a holiday dinner for the hard working and dedicated employees and volunteers tonight.
When they asked me for centerpieces I immediately said “YES!”
Then I mind was racing for a great idea…
racing for days!
Then I saw it…
Kerryanne’s Christmas Township Candle Jar!!! Wow!
Please go to Kerryanne’s amazing website Shabby Art Boutique for the instructions for making the candle jar.
I follow Kerryanne’s directions except instead of a town I did a doghouse, cat, fence and pine trees.
Bit of a backyard candle jar!
Notice too I put my “backyard” inside the jar. These will be given away and I thought they would hold up with the handling. Also the “backyard” is floating about a inch up the jar. I layered Christmas “snow” the kind used for tree skirts in the bottom of the jars.
I did that so the scene could be visible above the dollar store ornaments and bags of dog and cat treats tied up with ribbon and
tossed arranged on the dollar store tray. We are also using battery candles for safety. 🙂
I used a silhouette to cut out the “backyard” because I had 12 to make.
12 holiday centerpieces for the dogs and cats! Whew!
Now to bake some cookies for neighbors…and us! 😀
