Oh Christmas Tree

It is onward with the Christmas projects around here!  Every year I have a ton of projects I'd like to do and a ton that don't get done!  Here is something that I made as a gift.  I got the idea from a YouTuber (ILuvVintageScrapand from Pinterest. 

This tree has jewelry grade decorations. Each silver bell was attached to the chain individually using jump rings. I had fun using beads to create the Ornaments. While I looked at glass (mason) jars, the only ones I could find locally that we're big enough were Ball jars and they had writing on all four sides. They may work as part of the charm for undecorated trees but for a decorated one it took too much of the clarity and crispness away. 

So my shabby chic tree is encased in an acrylic jar purchased in the kitchen section of Walmart. Hope you like it!
