Easy Winter Forest in Apothecary Jars

Sometimes the simplest things make the prettiest decorations. I found these cute little sparkly green trees the other day and decided to make this easy winter forest in apothecary jars for my fireplace mantel.

Apothecary jars are such a great investment for someone like me who loves to decorate and throw parties. I wait until they go on sale, or I have a coupon and buy them.  I have them in many different shapes and sizes.  I use them every day, but change the contents depending on the holiday or season. If you don’t have apothecary jars, glass vases work well too.

For this project, I filled them with some cotton snow.  I bought a bag for about $3.00 and used barely any of it!

I found these adorable sparkly green trees at Walmart near the Christmas section where they sell the miniature villages.  The large one was $2.00, the medium ones were $1.50 each, and the small ones were only $.75 apiece.  This was a steal because as I shopped around at other places the large trees were around $7.00.  I found small ones at a craft store for missions, but they weren’t as cute as these. BUT if you want them, you have to hurry because I bought the last two small ones at my Walmart!

Here are a few photos.  It’s so simple, very festive. I’d show you more of my mantel but it’s still a work in progress!  So, stay tuned!
