This is one of our favourites that we've seen online! Get the kids together to help you make a set of miniature winter wonderland ornaments for the Christmas day table or round the house.

You’ll need:
• A few small, clear jars (available at Spotlight)• White Deco sand (available at Spotlight) mixed with glitter, or without!
• Sprigs of Christmas tree branches or tinsel (which you can cut from an old tree, if you have one)
• Artificial moss (also available at Spotlight!)

• White Christmas figurines or old decorations (such as reindeer, Santa and elves)

Method:
• Cover the bottom of your base or bowl with moss.• Sprinkle some of the sand over the moss, so that it mixes together and looks like a snow-covered forest floor.
• Position a figurine—or multiple figurines if your vase is larger—on top of the moss and sand.
• Cut some of the bristles from the Christmas tree branches at the base, and dig a few into the moss and sand, so that they stand up.
• Place your Winters-in-a-bottle around your outdoor area and table.
