Mason Jar Monday ~ Couple of cute ideas for Christmas Decor

Pinned Image

Okay, so this is using the same premise of the epsom salts and votives, but how cute is this to place them on your staircase?  Just tuck a few sprigs of greenery and some "unbreakable" ornaments and, what a beautiful scene!  For the mice, just cut out of black construction paper.

You can also use glass glitter to decorate your mason jars.

All  you need is

  • Design of your choice (find them on google or magazine)

  • Glass hurricane lamp/Mason Jar

  •  tape

  • Glue

  • Bottle with fine-tip applicator

  • Bowl

  • Clear glass glitter

  • Cake stand

  • Candle

  • Photocopy design of your choice, enlarging to fit into a glass hurricane or mason jar. Roll up the template and slide it inside the glass, with the design facing outward. Secure at the top with  tape. Using glue in bottle with a fine-tip applicator, outline one section of the design, then fill it in.

    Working over a bowl, sprinkle with clear glass glitter. Let glue dry; shake off excess glitter. Glue and glitter the next section of the design. Continue all the way around. Remove template; let dry overnight. Place hurricane lamp/mason jar on a cake stand, and place candle inside.
