To Grand­mother’s House We Go

Country Sampler - Christmas Decorating - - INSIDE - DE­SIGNED BY MARY CARR.

Cre­ate a lit­tle vi­gnette of trav­el­ing over the river and through the woods for a de­light­ful cen­ter­piece for your ta­ble. Cut or pur­chase two birch logs and place them next to each other just slightly apart. Run a bead of strong glue be­tween the logs and tie them to­gether with a cou­ple lengths of twine wrapped around the logs. Choose a clear jar with a wide mouth and in­sert faux snow, a lit­tle toy truck and some minia­ture trees into the jar. It can be tricky to get the pieces to sit up­right, so you may want to add a cou­ple dabs of glue to the truck and trees first, set them in place and then add the faux snow. Glue a larger tree onto one of the logs. Fi­nally, paint the jar lid and wrap and glue lengths of twine around the edge.
