Whiter Than Snow

The title of an old hymn was the inspiration for this sweet little jarred snow scene.  I pinned THIS IDEA, and quickly went hunting for my old hymnal.  Imagine my surprise when I found the hymn I was looking for.  I was worried the page had already been torn out for another project, but no -- there it was.  Yay!


The version of the hymn that I found was only half a page long, so I looked for a small canning jar for my project.  Again, success.


Next, I needed a snowman.  I was determined not to spend a cent for this project, so I searched through our ornaments, and found a snowy little guy that used to hold a photo up in the air for all to see.  He has officially been reassigned!  I used a little sticky-tack to secure him to the bottom of the jar.


I added Buffalo snowflakes that I had on hand, and taa-daa!

Oh my.  I really love this.  It's simple, but sparkly!


If you're curious about the words of the hymn, it goes like this:

Whiter Than Snow
Lord Jesus, I long to be perfectly whole.  I want Thee forever to live in my soul.
Break down every idol, cast out every foe.
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow

CHORUS:
Whiter than snow, yes whiter than snow.
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

Lord Jesus, look down from Thy throne in the skies, and help me to make a complete sacrifice.
I give up myself, and whatever I know.
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow

CHORUS

Lord Jesus, for this I most humbly entreat. I wait, blessed Lord, at Thy crucified feet.
By faith for my cleansing, I see Thy blood flow,
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

CHORUS

Lord Jesus, Thou seest I patiently wait.  Come now, and within me a new heart create.
To those who have sought Thee, Thou never said'st "no."
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

CHORUS
Whiter than snow, yes whiter than snow.
Now wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.

  4. Wow! This opens up so many possibilities! Like, "The Old Rugged Cross" with pebbles in the bottom of the jar and a twig cross for Easter?
    Thanks!

    1. What a great idea Jeri. If we looked through our hymnals, we might be inspired, AND inspired to do crafts! *wink*
