Christmas decor piece

It's Saturday!! A weekend of crafts awaits... 

To start you off I will share my Country View Craft Challenge  inspiration make for the Repurpose  challenge. 

The glass container is an instant coffee jar, onto which I have spread gesso, gel medium mixed with sparkles and glass beads.

The piece de resistance is of course the collection of leaves, acorns and berries I have moulded with the Stamperia Silicone Mould A5 Woodland Mushrooms : 
If you wondered, the other half of the mould has the mushrooms!

I stuck the elements on the jar with a mix of gel medium and white paint and added varying mixes on top as if covered in snow.

I'm hoping it will be a nice table centre piece for the holidays, especially at night...

The other side of the jar...

What will you make to enter our Country View Crafts challenge and be in with a chance to win the very mould I used? The challenge is run in Facebook and you will have to join our friendly group first.

Thanks for coming by,

  2. What a lovely centrepiece for your festive table. I will have to look out for those moulds. xx

  3. What a lovely make this is Christine, always rewarding to reuse something we can so easily discard. Those molded acorns berries and leaves really breath new life to your mixed media jar. Thank you so much for sharing with us @ Creative Artiste, another treasure of a design.
