Santa’s Belt {Homemade Christmas Decor}

But that just means I can share this fun and simple Christmas decor project with you!

I’m calling it —Santa’s Belt!— 

Here’s the super quick tutorial…

1. Start with a decorative glass container and some sort of red filler. I’m using leftover red glitter balls from last year’s ornament wreath, and black glitter balls leftover from last year’s decor! You could also use miniature red ornaments or red pom poms.

2. Put a glass/candle/toilet paper roll (you get the idea) inside your glass container to take up some of the volume. I’m using an upside down Mason jar.

3. Start to drop in your red filler material.

4. About halfway up I added some of the black glitter balls to look like a belt, but this isn’t really necessary. I was just afraid I wouldn’t have enough of the red to fill the entire container.

Finally, take an old belt and wrap it around your glass container. Buckle the belt (pierce a hole if you need to) and trim off any excess.

And now we have some super cute and super simple Christmas decor!

I stuck mine up on my mantle. You’re getting a little sneak peek!

There will be a full reveal at a later date.
