Christmas Truck in a Bottle

I've always love the boats in a bottle and thought how fun it would be to take a fun Christmas memory of picking out a Christmas tree and taking it home in a bottle for Christmas decoration. It turned out so fun and was really quite easy!

Time: 20 minutes
Level: Beginner
Size: varies

Here's what you'll need:

  • Glue Dots® Permanent Dots™
  • Glass jar (size can vary depending on the size of your truck)
  • Toy truck
  • Brown cardstock
  • Canadian Craft Pine Stems (similar to pipe cleaners)
  • White felt or fleece type fabric or other "snowy" material
  • Glitter (optional)
  • Ribbon/twine/other decorative accessories


Here's what you do:

Take your fabric you are using for snow (or other snow supplies) and put into your bottle. Add glitter if you want to now.


Roll your brown cardstock into a tube and adhere with permanent glue dots.

Take your pine stems and bend and adhere to the brown cardstock to look like a Christmas tree.



Adhere your tree to your toy truck and tie some twine around the truck and tree.


Place your fleece or felt, 'snow-like' material into the jar.


Place your truck and tree in your jar, place the lid on, and lay it on it's side.


Add ribbon, twine, or other decorative accessories to the lid/jar.

It's really so simple, yet so fun and makes me smile remembering picking out Christmas trees with my family each year. Family memories and traditions are the best and this is the perfect way to remember them.
