ONE: use your wire cutters to trim the tip of the tree (put your jar next to your tree to determine how much you need to trim off.)
TWO: (this is the tricky part) put a glob of hot glue on the tip of your toothpick and carefully put the hot glue on the inside bottom of your jar. Put your tree in immediately to secure, using the toothpick to position it properly. Let dry.
THREE: carefully fill your jar with glitter.
This is the glitter I found at my local Michael’s craft store.
You want to use an extra fine glitter so it looks the most like snow.
This one is conveniently called “snow.” It’s perfect for this project!
After you’ve poured the glitter in, put some hot glue on your cork and insert into the bottle to seal.
Add your jump ring and chain.
Here’s the necklace in my hand to show you how tiny it is!
It’s a really fun Christmas accessory and would make a great gift as well.
