I love mason jars, they are great for DIY gifts and great for DIY decorating. This past Fall I made leaf covered mason jars and they added a great Fall touch to my mantle and my dining table for Thanksgiving.
There are a ton of ideas on Pinterest for DIY Christmas Mason Jars, so I decided to try this snow-covered mason jar. They turned out beautifully and they were easy to make, which is my kind of craft, with 4 kids and a busy schedule.
If you want to try a craft this Christmas definitely make these, you’ll love them and probably already have everything you need to make them. You can find mason jars at the Dollar Store if you don’t already have some. I think these would make a great gift, I sure would love to receive something like this.
What You Need:
- Mason Jars
- Mod Podge
- Epsom Salt
- White Glitter (optional) I think it adds a nice sparkle.
- Twine or Ribbon
- Greenery, Berries, Pinecones or Bows
1. Pour Epsom Salt and White Glitter in a bowl. Have a scoop to sprinkle over jars. I used a sand toy shovel.
2. Begin by covering the jar with Mod Podge.
3. Sprinkle the mixture of Epsom Salt and Glitter over the jar. This makes it look like it’s covered in snow.
4. I had spray adhesive so I used it, but I don’t think it’s necessary, others have recommended a second coat of Mod Podge on top. I just used the spray I had.
5. Tie twine around the mouth of the jar and decorate with greenery, berries or small pinecones. You could also use ribbon if that’s what you have.
This is a simple and easy craft to make that adds a beautiful winter touch to a mantle or dining table centerpiece. Place those flameless candles inside and they look great even at night.
