Dollar Store Christmas Elves Craft

Dollar Store Elf Craft |

I was at the dollar store a few weeks ago and spotted these adorable elves. They we're just too cute to pass up. I wanted to get a few for my friend's kids and Raven. Then at Target in the Dollar Spot I found the perfect bags to put them in to keep them safe on their travels to their new homes.

I used my Cricut to cut out the names and the bag design in HTV (heat transfer vinyl). I love how they came out! And Raven can't go anywhere with our her new elf friend.

DIY Glitter Night Light

I've been seeing super cute glitter Mason jar night lights on Pinterest lately and I wanted to try making one for Raven's room. I didn't have a Mason jar handy but I did have a giant salsa jar to use. I could not believe how easy it was to make. Now I want to glitter everything!!  

Here's what you need to get started:
    1.    A clean jar
    2.    Floor cleaner (I used Pledge floor care)
    3.    Extra fine glitter
    4.    A LED light or battery operated tea light

First, pour the floor cleaner into the jar. Make sure to coat the entire jar. Then let the excess liquid drip out. (Ozzy wanted to help)

Then pour in your glitter and coat the inside of the jar. I slowly spinned the jar on it’s side to get an even coat.

Next shake out the excess glitter and let the jar dry. Even though my jar is huge it didn’t take very much glitter at all. For extra fanciness, I made a raven decal and applied it to the outside of the jar

For the last step I put velcro on the inside of the jar lid and velcro on the bottom of my LED light. I also added a little ribbon around the neck of the jar.

I think it fits right in with the rest of her decor. Now I'm off to glitter everything else in the house.
