Holiday Altered Art

Happy Holidays!
Jackson's Digital Expressions Altered Arts Design Team created projects using any kind of container new or recyled from jars, cans, etc.  I enjoy working with Robert Jackson's cute digital images and have two projects to share.  The first is a canned jar of spiced tea I'm making for my mother's Thanksgiving table.  She started a Thanksgiving tradition over 20 years ago cooking dinner for her family and loves to give gifts.  The little jars will be used as table decor and given to her sisters.

Now for Christmas I used fabric on this project.  It's an old candle jar and it was truly an exciting time for me since it was my first opportunity to use fabric.  My Stampin Up buddy Sharon RAK'd her stampin group with a box of Designer Candy Cane Christmas Fabric and I knew I would use it, but not sure how.  I made the floral flower and put it on top of the Prima flower with leaves. I also tappered the cover and placed it on top securing it with felt fiber.

Don't you just love this heartwarming image?!

This is my pride and joy!  My first fabric flower!!!!  : )

The bottom has red poinsettas and the tag was placed inside.
Now come on and create your altered item using any kind of container.  The theme is Holiday or Winter.  Here's a photo of them both.
