Etched Snowflake Candy Jar

Quick and Easy Holiday Gift Idea

When it comes to the Holidays I love Quick and Easy Gift Ideas.

For the Snowflake Candy Jar…

I used a small canning jar etched with snowflakes and filled with candy.

It’s a project that I was able to put together in under a half hour.

To make the Snowflake Candy JAR…                 

  1. Punch a strip of Snowflakes using etchmask™ vinyl and a snowflake punch.
  2. Carefully cover the jar with the vinyl.
  3. Make sure to burnish the vinyl to get out air bubbles and to make sure the all edges all down.
  4. Apply a thick coat of Etchall over the snowflake cut out using the squeegee.

  7. Remove Stencil and dry.
  8. Add adhesive rhinestones to the center of each snowflake.
  9. Wrap craft stem around the neck of the jar and glue on a red button.

Snowflakes still Hot in May…

The weather’s finally turned warm and I’m still making Snowflakes. 

Snowflake Collage

Want to know why?  Here are just four of the reasons…

  1. Liyah’s Tutu’s
  2. Tutu’s Delicious Delights
  3. Tami’s T’s & Beyond
  4. Dream by Girl Boutique

I make 3″ felt snowflakes that I sell in my Etsy Shop.   (I’ve been making them by the hundreds.)  And… these ladies (and others) have been buying them all up.  I think these dresses are just adorable and I wanted to share them with you.   Makes me wish I had a granddaughter to buy one for.

So…Since I make so many snowflakes I figured I should at least watch the movie.  When I went to the video store I was put on the wait list.  (really?)  I finally watched the movie “Frozen” with my little buddy Nicholas last Saturday.  What a sweet movie.  (now I get it!)

If you have any little girls that are hooked on the movie “Frozen”, you might want to check out these lovely ladies.
