First Christmas project.

I know I'm supposed to wait till after next week but I just can't help myself, the Christmas crafting has started in the Gilster residence! It's not a finished product, but here is the base of it and I think it's fun that you can even add some of your own personal details to it and make it your own.

Our DIY Christmas table runner :) 

What you will need…
- 15" faux wreathes (found these at the dollar tree!)
- Quart size mason jars (smart & final)
- Wire cutting scissors
- Small votive candles
- Any other fun accessories for your arrangement

You will find that the 15" wreathes are a little too big so we used heavy duty scissors to cut the wire & form it around our mason jars. In doing this it will make your wreaths look much fuller! 

Whalla!! You are basically done, it's a clean/easy project & looks really good. It's not 100% complete yet, I still need to go buy some candles to place inside the major jars & some sort of runner for our table. I'm hoping of scoring some lace doilies to use or just grabbing some burlap :)

Later, I added some of these bark candles that I got as a gift from Crate & Barrel. Pine cones could also be a fun addition to your Christmas runner! Now get crafting :)
