WorkWith Mason Jar: Snowy Bell Jars

Backstory: After doing the Enchanted Rose Jar, I have been thinking about creating my own snow globes, if you will, with mason jars but recently the main ornament I have been able to get my hand on was these adorable bell ornaments ( which I love). So, I figured that when things don’t quite go as envisioned, we can still make it work. For today’s project, there really isn’t much to it at all, all you need is some bells, glitter, a mason jar, some good tape or some glue that is water resistant: Snowy Bell Jars

What I Used:

1 Mason Jar

1 Bell Ornament of Choice

Glitter Of Choice ( I used some white iridescent glitter and later added a little bit of gold)


How It’s Done:

Simply take your bells and glue them to the top or the bottom of the jar ( It really is your choice, I taped mine to the bottom of the jar

Fill your jar to the brim with water ( make sure your bells are secured in the jar) and then sprinkle your glitter into it.


Turn your jar upside down and see the snow fall


Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to you!


WorkWith A Mason Jar: Cinderella’s Castle Silhouette Lantern

Bonjour, Good Day, to you ♥ today ♥~

First off, it has been forever and a day since I have posted a craft here buuut I did not want to close this blog down because of my lack of motivation to keep posting in the frequency I was before so now I am going to try to post something here at least once a week. Since it has been so long, it is almost like I am starting all over again! I want to kick off my return back to WorkWithIt with a Disney-inspired craft.

Growing up, as a 90s baby, I was an avid fan of Disney classics movies and even today, I have absolutely enjoyed the whimsical & graceful quality of the live action films: Cinderella & Beauty & The Beast. May Disney stick with originality, innocence with an example of purity,  gracefullness with a mighty dash of whimsicality. As for today’s craft, I wanted to work with this Mason jar to create a glitter globe:

What I Used:

1 Medium Sized Mason Jar

1 Small Cinderella Castle Cut Out

1 LED Multi color candle (I got two for 1 dollar at a dollar store so, please check there first before you pay any more)

Ribbon ( optional or a chain)

How It’s Done:

Step 1) Cut out an outline of the Cinderella– Castle.  You can simply go to Google Images, search for cut-outs and go from there if you like. I chose to use basic cardstock cream paper because that is what I had but a black piece of paper would probably do even better if you have it.

Step 2) Glue your outline onto the outside of your jar.

Step 3) Take a piece of ribbon or chain and glue it to each side of your jar.  * This is optional but it is the “lantern” part of it.


Step 4) Put your LED candle light in the middle * I chose a multicolor one but you can do whatever you’d like

Wala: Your own little castle nightlight 🙂

WorkWith Wire Wreath: Paper-Circle Chandelier

Backstory: I have recently reached a point in my life whereas I do not think I can spare a single penny more into any more craft supplies; well perhaps I am being a bit dramatic but honestly, unless I can spare a dollar here and there, I am currently just going to be creating crafts by either recycling previous craft supplies or simply doing what we do best here, creating from what we already have. That being said, today I reused the wire wreath from the Tutu Canopy that I did earlier on here and made a paper-circle chandelier.

What I Used:

Medium Sized Wire Wreath

Cardstock Paper




How It’s Done:

Step 1) Paint your wire wreath your color of choice. * Since I have been obsessed with this blue cotton color, I decided to use that color.

Step 2) Using a circular object, trace several circles onto card-stock paper and cut these circles out. The more, the better.


Step 3) Paint your circles and let come to being at least nearly dry

Step 4) Lay out your ribbon in equal lengths and tape your circles via the back in your pattern of choice. * I did lay out my circles/ribbon beforehand just so I could get a general idea of how I wanted the layout of circles to be.

Step 5) Take two equally long piece of ribbons and tie them in a cross position to your wire wreath as this is how your chandelier will be hanged.

Step 6) Tie your circle strands onto your wire wreath in various places. *I did not create many circle strands ( I did maybe 6) but you can create as many or little as you’d like your chandelier to have.

There you have it!

WorkWith Glitter Cardstock Paper: Shooting Star Spinners

Backstory: My good friend, Carly, gave me this very pretty blue-glitter cardstock paper a week or so ago and I just knew I had to make something with it. As I have been in the stores lately, I have noticed the usual wind blower spinner things  and figured that I would just make my own hand-held spinners using the star as the shape since the 4th of July is coming in all.

What I Used:

1 Unsharpened Pencil

1 Wall/Cardboard Tac

Blue Glitter Cardstock Paper by Recollections



How Its Done:

Step 1) Cut out an outline of a medium size star on your Cardstock paper

Step 2) Carefully, poke your tax into the center of your pencil ( do not poke it all the way through).

Step 3) Once you have made a sturdy hole into your pencil, poke your tax into the center of your star, then back into the pencil. There should be a little room in between your star/pencil so that the star can spin.

Step 4) Take a piece of tulle and glue it onto the back of your pencil




Isn’t it cute ? I think that with some parental guidance because of the sharp tacs…that I managed to poke myself with…these would be a cute little party DIY/craft for the kiddies to take home, what do you think ?

WorkWith Hand-held Mirror: Whimsy Fairy Mirror

Backstory: I am sure that many of us have seen those beautiful & enchanting hand-held mirrors and brushes in those fairy-tale sort of movies. Well, I figured that I could workwith a regular & bland one to create an enchantingly whimsical one just by using a few decorative faux flowers. I will say that the process of decorating the mirror certainly developed as I actually made this craft. That being said, I would love to do more so a blue, butterfly/filigree inspired mirror in the future so let me know if you would like to see that,

What I Used:

1 Hand-held Mirror

Fake Roses ( I chose White, Yellow & white with a fuchsia-like trim).

Paint ( I used a blue cotton color)

Hot Glue Gun

How It’s Done:

Step 1) If you do not like the color of the base of your mirror, paint it in the color of your choice.

Step 2) If necessary, cut your flowers from the bouquet. * Pay attention to how you would like your mirror to be decorated because this may mean cutting them stem completely off or shorter, etc). I laid my flowers out on my bed to get an idea of what pattern I would be interested in doing.


Step 3) Using your hot glue gun, glue on your decorative flowers around the perimeter of your mirror. Use your glue gun to also glue down any loose pieces. * I did not really show this part but I feel it is certainly going to be a personalized step


Step 4) Using the leftover leaves from your bouquet, glue them onto the handle.



You are done!

So, this project did not turn out how I had it envisioned but because we are not about perfect execution but just execution of creating, I wanted to share it nonetheless. I think it’s something that is reminiscent of a fairy that kids would love to make. What do you think ?
