DIY Winter Woodland Scene

I thought I would pop in for a minute to share a simple "winter scene" that I created for our rustic holiday home. I am literally posting this while my kids play in the other room, so I have to hurry!
If you can believe it, I still haven't finished my Christmas decorating, but I am eager to share the inside tour of our holiday home just as soon as time allows. Till then here is a little diy project for you. It took me a total of about five minutes...really. Very simple.
My daughter has a thing for deer, so she loves anything deer themed. A couple of years ago, this was literally the scene out our back door...
For this winter project, I used old mason jars, cardboard torn from cracker and cereal boxes, deer stamps (affiliate link*) that I borrowed from my neighbor (she let me use them for Hazel's second birthday party which had a deer theme), and faux snow (affiliate link*). I also threw in some little trees, pine cones and a plastic deer.
I didn't care about perfection with this project...as you can see above, I stamped the deer twice because the first time I did it, the ink didn't show up very good. Oh well...
I like this project because it is not just for Christmas, unlike other mason jar scenes I have done, which were very "holidayish". This one can stay up all winter long, and even after, by simply exchanging the snow for something else like moss or excelsior wood shred. It would look great on a mantel or shelf. I hope you enjoyed it! 

Next post, I will bring you inside for a tour...

Till next time...
