So…ta da! A Mason Jar Christmas Tree!
Junkmarket Style has a mason jar challenge going on until December 15th. It is not a win or lose challenge just an exercise in creativity and meeting new junk friends.
I have to admit, I have not been as active with posting on Junkmarket Style as I planned. I do hope to do better next year. Junkmarket Style is a great group of junk minded people with wonderful ideas and encouraging comments.
I’m not sure how or why I came up with making a mason jar tree. Maybe it was seeing the jars filling in my little workshop. Or finding a box of these colorful ornaments in the “Christmas” closet upstairs. Possibly the sticks outside after the windy storm came through last weekend. But whatever is was, I pretty sure it’s the only mason jar tree!
I placed one ornament in 10 jars.
I grabbed a piece of wood from the workshop that happened to be the perfect size. See this mason jar tree was meant to be!
Now a disclaimer…this will not hold entire tree upright. I placed the tree on the mantel in our bedroom back in the corner. If you wanted you could use a hot glue gun to secure the tree. The hot glue will pick off when you’re ready to take the tree down.
…as it should be!
What is the strangest Christmas decoration you have up right now?
Added note: The Mason Jar Christmas Tree was a tied winner at Junkmarket Style!!! Tied with Butter Beans Antiques and the beautiful Peace Mason Jar sign.
