Here’s a easy to make
Christmas craft that
will have you emptying
those pickle jars
as fast as you can
Use up all of the old jars
you have in the fridge
with with this fun snow
covered rustic candle
A few jars, some
and a old book, some greens and a candle. Voila!
Tear old book pages into uneven pieces approximately 2 -3 inches high, make sure you have enough to go around the bottom of each jar. If your book pages are not old and faded enough you can tea dye them first to get that nice antiqued look.
Using Modge podge apply the book pages to the bottom of the jar, let dry. After it’s dried apply more Modge podge on the top of the book pages, and dip the wet jar into a bag of fake snow [that’s the fun part, there will be snow everywhere].
Let jar dry, and then embellish with rustic twine, pieces of greenery, and a snowflake or two.
Just a word, modge podge while absolutely wonderful doesn’t make a good glue, so use some glue to attach your snowflakes. Trying to get a good shot in-between them falling off of the jar was rather fun.
It’s important to know that you should only use battery operated candles with these types of ornamented jars in case of fire.
The glow of a battery operated candle is just as pretty, and much safer to use.
