DIY Snowy Mason Jars – create faux snow-covered mason jar luminaries for the holiday season
Happy Friday, friends! I’m so excited to kick off the official start of the holiday season. In the blogging world, we sometimes have to work months ahead so I’ve been anxiously waiting to share some holiday content with you guys. One of my favorite holiday decorating projects I shared on the DecoArt blog a few years ago are these DIY Snowy Mason Jars. I realized I never shared them here so I thought I would create a quick tutorial. These are perfect for decorating your mantle, dining table or front porch. I decorated my jars with a piece of faux greenery with tiny berries and a twine bow. Then added a battery-operated tea light inside. I love the way they glow at night and look beautiful on my Christmas mantle.This post contains affiliate links to the products I used
Glue I’ve used THIS GLUE and THIS ONE (both work great)
Epsom Salt use the left over to make —> Bath Salt Ornaments!
Glitter <— this looks beautiful and adds a little sparkle to your jars
Greenery & twine
Flameless tea lights
- Combine 1 cup of Epsom salt with a tablespoon of glitter in a disposable plate or bowl. Depending on how many jars you plan to make, you may need more.
- Apply a layer of glue around the mason jar. Be careful not to layer it on too thick or the glue will start to drip once the Epsom salt is applied. I used tacky glue for these and it worked really well. You can also use decoupage glue.
- Sprinkle the glitter Epsom salt around the jar until evenly covered. Place the jars on a cleanable surface or paper (newspaper, wax paper, etc.) in case glue drips down while drying. Allow the jars to dry for several hours, preferably overnight.
- Cut a small piece or faux greenery and use a dot of hot glue to adhere to the top of the jar. You can find holiday greenery at most craft stores during this time of year. You could even add fresh greenery from your yard. Then wrap twine around the mouth of the jar a few times and tie off with a bow. Add a flickering tea light to create luminaries for your holiday decor.
