Mason Jar Candle Holder

Materials:

  • Empty mason jar
  • Painters tape
  • Acrylic paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Twine
  • Cardstock paper
  • Tea light candle/battery operated candle

 

  1. Lay out rows of the painter’s tape on a hard surface so that they overlap and create one large sheet of tape.
  2. Cut out any shape and place it on the mason jar, pressing down firmly.
  3. Place some more painters tape around the rim of the jar so that paint won’t get inside.
  4. Paint the jar with several colors and peel the tape off before the paint dries.
  5. Cut out a tag from the cardstock, write a message on it, and punch a hole in it.
  6. Wrap the twine around the rim of the jar and attach the tag.
  7. Place the tea light inside and enjoy!
