Hey y’all…Do you feel like you’re trying to beat the Christmas clock? I’m starting to hear the tick-tick-tick that signifies I better get to shopping and menu planning. We are having a very low-key holiday this year so there really isn’t a lot to prepare for. I feel so calm and laid back that I’m afraid I may have forgotten something very important 🙂

I’m sharing my final Christmas decor tweaks. I needed to create something for the family room coffee table because I used those decorations in the dining room.

This is another super quick craft for Christmas decor. Today is all about Christmas terrariums. This isn’t a new craft – I’m sure you’ve seen these all over the internet – but they are new to me. I’ve never made them before, and frankly, I don’t know what took me so long! These turned out so cute.

Materials I used:

  • 3 glass containers
  • faux snow
  • clear vase filler from the dollar store
  • mini bottle brush trees
  • ornaments
  • twigs
  • vintage ceramic deer

These could not be any easier to make.

Pour snow or vase filler in the bottom of a clear glass container.  I added 3 mini trees and an ornament…that’s it! I told you this was simple.

This container has mini trees, a snowman ornament and twigs for a more rustic look.

This cracker jar terrarium is sentimental to me. I have had this little ceramic fawn since I was a little girl.

She has the sweetest face. Sorry that the images seem blurry – this glass was so hard to photograph.

They look so good grouped together on the coffee table. These terrariums only took about 5 minutes to make – total time for all three! They were really that quick to do and they were so much fun to put together.

So, I guess it is time to declare that my Christmas decorating is officially complete. No more tweaking, no more moving things around. I’m ready to enjoy drinking hot cocoa (or a special bev) in front of a cozy fire with Honey Bee, gazing at our beautiful Christmas tree and knowing how lucky we are at our most favorite time of year!

Until Monday…



  1. These are too cute lady! I can’t believe they were so easy to make. I love the special ornaments you’ve used and the branches and the bottle brush trees too! Hugs, CoCo

  2. I must say, I was very impressed with how quickly this was completed. Great look.

  3. Adorable idea, I will do this with my Grand for next year…! Thanks so much for the cute idea, Sandi
