Visions of Sugarplums 2015...Day 2 of 3!

Hello there, friends!

Its day 2 for the Visions of Sugarplums Hop!  It's time for more Christmas fun!  Lori of Chouxchoux Paper Art is hosting the Visions of Sugarplums Blog Hop!  Lots of fun with prizes!  And, a challenge(Christmas/Winter) with any project that fits the theme can be linked to Lori's blog mentioned above!  The challenge will end December 20th.  And, a randomly selected winner will receive a $25 gift certificate to Lawn Fawn!  Come and check it out!
Here is my second Christmas project that I created for the hop...
I started with a glass container and sprayed it with glitter on the inside and outside.  Iridescent snow flakes were placed on the bottom.  The church is an ornament, and I placed a star above the circular window and blue gems around the other windows.  Large snowflakes were placed on the sides and trims around the top.  Here are a couple more views...

The church lights up as you can see through the windows!  And, one more view of the trims along the top...
  Please visit the list below to see what amazing projects these talented ladies created!

  12. Beautiful - so love the vintage country snowy look! Reminds me of the old song... church in the valley of the wildwood - no lovelier place in the dale.... YOU made a lovely wintery peaceful happy place for your church Maria. Sooo precious. j.

  13. Your little church, nestled in the wintry wonderland you've created, makes for a beautiful ornament! I'll bet it's all the more stunning lit up...

  14. This little church is just gorgeous! I love how realistic it looks too!
    Take care!

  15. Maria, this is beautiful! Love the large snowflake on the church. The whole entire thing is fabulous! So glad you're a part of Visions of Sugarplums!

  16. OH heavens! This is just gorgeous! Great to be along for this hop. So much inspiration!

  17. Oh my...were you in Michaels this weekend?? I just bought a little house and some of those cute little trees! I am afraid to start though...if mine turns out half as good as yours I'll be did you get the church to light up?

  18. This is a beautiful Christmas decoration and definitely something I could put together.
    How SPECIAL that the church lights up. Since I didn't see any wires, I am assuming you bought it that way.

    Thanks for sharing.

  19. Oh this is so pretty! Beautifully done!

  20. Such a pretty Christmas scene Maria......I wish they sold those tiny tree here, I would love the make something like this! So much inspiration...its been fun hoping with you!

  21. What the cuteness!!! When I lived in Germany and tried to describe Winter there to people, I would tell them it was like being in a snow globe; especially if you were out in the towns shopping for Christmas. NOW I'm gonna tell them it's like being in Maria's glass jar! This is beautiful and you've captured the essence of winter and wonder and praise all in one! Fantastic make. :)
