Christmas Gift Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Christmas Gift Blog Hop!



If you missed yesterday...scroll on down and check it out. Also, get registered on Day 1 for my blog candy ;0)
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping in today and joining us for the 2 Day Christmas Gift Blog Hop hosted by Becka from Creations with Becka .

You're gonna find lots of creative gifts that you can make for your friends, family, loved ones, co-workers, children's teachers, etc.
If you came from the super talented Dana of Dana's Crafty Corner, then you're in the right place. If you just stopped by please start at the beginning with the crafty Becka at Creations with Becka .

I made this cute potpourri filled luminary. I've made 2 versions....one is with Christmas lights and the other with a flameless candle.













I got all the stuff at the Dollar Tree. Gotta love the Dollar Tree.




Trace the top of the container that you choose on the fabric. Then cut out about 3 to 4" from the traced top. This will give you the lid for your luminary with some extra ruffles.




Start putting in the lights and alternate with the potpourri.







Easy as pie. Now put the fabric on the top and place a rubber band over to secure. Voila!



Here is an alternative version with a flameless candle. You just don't put as much potpourri in the jar. Dress up with some ribbon. The cut is a candy from the Gingerbread cart cut at 3".

Now it's time to get hopping. Please make sure you comment and each blog so you can win Becka's grand prize for the hop.


Be Blessed, Beckie
