For the past two years, Ball has been releasing one special
"Heritage" color. Note: these are new jars... not vintage although with the lovely green tint, they look it!

I grabbed 8 of the quart size and four of the pint size jars. For stability, I had some scrap wood that we sawed down for this project. One piece was 24 inches long, another piece that’s 19 inches long and a shorter, 5 inch long piece. My scrap wood happened to be two inches or so thick. For the snow, I used "Holiday Snow" which is a faux snow product. You''ll also need Krylon white spray paint, some Christmas lights and something to decorate the top of the tree.

First, I spray painted the plywood white. You could also paint the wood with acrylic paint.

Next, I covered the 5 jars that I wanted to use for the bottom of the tree with faux snow. The 3 middle jars I sprayed halfway with the faux snow.
