Saturday Project: Holiday Glass Candle Jars

As we get ready for the holidays I am always looking for inexpensive decorations that I can theme to match whatever colors and shapes I happen to be into that year. I don’t want to spend a fortune but I love to have pieces that are new each year. A great way to do this is with glass candle jars.

The idea came from a post at Momtastic about doing 4th of July star jars. This project is easy and fun. Here are the steps.

  1. Gather glass jars of various sizes. Be sure that volute or tea light candles will fit in the jars. Wash the jars thoroughly and let them dry completely.
  2. Get stickers in various simple shapes for the holiday you are making the jars. For example – leaves for fall/Thanksgiving, stars or trees for Christmas, etc.
  3. Put the stickers on your jars. Arrange them randomly or to tell a story. Really press the stickers onto your jars.
  4. Select spray paint in your current favorite colors. Spray the jars.
  5. Allow the jar to dry for 15 -90 minutes and then peel off the stickers.
  6. Allow the jar to dry according to the paint directions (usually 24-48 hours).
  7. Put your candle in and enjoy!

TIP: Use battery-powered votive or tea light candles for longer lasting light.
