Christmas Decorating Tips by Connie's Spot©

 This is a really cute way to display your
Christmas Candy Canes
I bought these little Ice skates from the grocery store a few
years ago...and hung them on the door...but they fell flat so this
year I stuffed them with a little tissue paper and placed my
candy canes in there...tie a pretty bow and now every guest leaving can
take a little sweet with them!
 Super easy to make waterless snow globes...these are
so cute...I had these 3 cup cake domes that I wasn't using so
I made these for my kitchen!
Here's a great way to dress up your dessert buffet!
At night they just sparkle!
 Here's all you need:
Scrap Book Paper or Card Board
Small Figurines & Trees 
Cotton Balls
Fake Snow
*On a piece of scrap book paper or card board, with a pencil take the
top part of the dome and trace around it
*Cut out the circle and lay it on the pedal stool
*Take cotton balls and spread them out
*Place figurines on the pedal stool
*Sprinkle some fake snow flakes & place dome on top
No glue, no water and no mess!
I'm not going to be moving mine around a lot...but you can glue them
down if you want to...I didn't
because these are the figurines from my
Christmas Village!
And since I didn't glue them I can change them every so often!
They are very fun to look at and share with guest!
Who doesn't love a little snow scene at
Christmas Time!
Here's to an Early Start on your Christmas Decorating!
Looking for Some Holiday Yummies try these &

Snow Globes How to on Connie's Spot©

 "Snow Globes"
How to by Connie's Spot©
I love snow globes...and I have thought about making some
for a long time now but I always find myself to busy doing something...
well not this year...so here are the one's I've made...
they are so pretty when the light hits them.
 This little Bride & Groom is one of my favorites...
I got this figurine at Walmart.
 This guy I love also...he cost a little more...
I got him at Michael's Craft Store,
 The little trees are so simple, but look so pretty and only cost
.75 cents at Walmart!
 I love this guy on the bike...he was to big to fit in any of
my jars...so my husband trimmed him a little in the
front and the back so he would fit...I love him.
 This one reminded me of the story about the little girl
who wrote to Macy's asking if there really is a Santa...
so I had to have it!

 This is a super tiny Nativity that fit inside this
baby food jar...well that is all I have for now...hope you get inspired
and try something you've wanting to do and just haven't found the
time to do it...best wishes to all and to all a good night!
How To Instructions:
 First clean your jars inside and out...some of my jars
still had labels on them so I used Goo Gone...and it
really works!
 With a little sand paper rough up the lids and
the back side of your figurines.
 I put hot glue on the back of my figurine and on the lid...let
the glue really heat up...hold in place until the glue sets.
Use distilled water (I got mine at Walmart, and most of the figurines
came from there too, they were very inexpensive).
 The glycerin will help with the glitter...
you can find it in the cake dept in most craft stores...
it makes the water a little thicker...
just add a few drops and stir...
fill the jars up pretty full.
 I decorated my jars with trim, ribbons, rick-rack and buttons...I really
love how they look...and this is a super easy project...the little
one's will love helping you...just glue the stuff on and
watch the magic happen!
 Kids love snow globes...you can even let the kids pick some of
their plastic toys and glue them down...those little Star Wars toys
would be perfect for some adorable little boy to make...and those little
plastic princess dolls for the girls...be creative and I hope you all have
a wonderful time making your
