The holiday season is about family, traditions and coming together to celebrate those very things. In the video above, Celebrations Expert Jes Gordon shows you how to bring a touch of personalization and modern flair to your holiday and Christmas celebrations.

Add a touch of rock-n-roll, glamour and modernity to your tablescape with just a little DIY elbow grease and a few dollars using her simple tutorial to craft glowing photo displays for your home.

While we love the idea of using a few of these pieces as a centerpiece to wow dinner guests, we think this DIY decoration is perfect for your holiday mantle display!

And though these decorations surely are gorgeous, what's really so great about them is that you're creating a custom piece using family photos. As family members make their way to your home for a holiday visit, they'll really love having this personalized Christmas decoration to look and will definitely enjoy reminiscing over some of the pictures. So, make sure you get as many of your family members in these decorations!


Apothecary jars
Seaglass (choose the color to go with your party theme or the holiday)

Step 1: Start out by placing part of the string of LED lights in an apothecary jar and begin to pour the seaglass in.

Step 2: Pour a little at a time to achieve the perfect effect, mixing the LED lights with the seaglass.

Step 3: Finish by putting the lid on top of the full apothecary jar.  

Step 4: Repeat with jars of different sizes and shapes and different colored seaglass, and group in the middle of your table.
