White Christmas Mason Jar Luminaries

Jars bottles 6 hours ago
Super easy, pretty (and cheap!) mason jar luminaries for Christmas. I used stencils, glass paint, Mod Podge & salt to make these in under an hour. :)
Time: 1 Hour Cost: $10 Difficulty: Easy
  • These mason jar luminaries are so easy! You probably have almost all the supplies on hand to make these already, too!
  • You'll need mason jars, Mod Podge, silver glass paint, foam brushes, stencils, tea lights, ribbon & salt.
  • This step is totally optional but the snowflakes do add a pretty touch. :) I used some Martha Stewart glass paint snowflake stencils to stencil my jars.
  • After the paint dried, I coated my mason jar with Mod Podge. Then I just sprinkled salt on my jar.
  • The salt sticks right to the Mod Podge, and it looks so pretty!
  • I love how they turned out!
  • They would make a great centerpiece on a holiday table or even decoration for a winter wedding.

    Maggie, ,,,"old school/ traditional" decoupage is a series of glue, sand, glue, sand repeated times, you finally end up with a glass like finish, adding pieces with each layer, it has a depth you don't see in this type of art. ,A very slow process. MOD

      Maggie They say White Glue (Like ELMER S ) watered down a little will do the same thing. But keep it sort of thick.
