DIY FALL MASON JAR CANDLES
I love a good mason jar DIY. There are about a million ways to use them and I try to challenge myself to come up with a new one every season. These mason jar candle holders are the perfect blend of cozy and chic. They're simple to recreate and have a bit of a rustic feel, but the gold detailing gives it a trendy edge.
VINYL OR CONTACT PAPER
BATTERY OPERATED CANDLES
Start with some mason jars. I would recommend using jars that have one smooth side with no writing.
You'll also need some acrylic paint of any color. I decided to go with an antique white.
Add your paint into a small container and mix it with some water. I used about a 3 to 1 ratio of paint to water.
Pour a bit of watered down paint into each jar and swirl it around until the entire inside of the jar is covered.
Let any excess paint drip out and then place the jar upside down on a piece of paper to dry.
Print the letters of the word that you want to spell, I'm spelling out the word "fall" and I just Googled "letter f stencil" etc. until I found one that I liked. Cut these out on plain paper and then trace them onto vinyl or contact paper.
Carefully stick one letter to each jar.
Using a piece of twine or ribbon, tie a bow around the rim of each jar and trim the ends to your liking. Add battery operated candles and that's it! These are such a beautiful addition to my fall decor and I just love the subtle glow that they add to the room.
