How to Repurpose a Candle Jar Into a DIY Winter Snow Lantern
Today I'm going to share with you an easy winter snow lantern home décor DIY using humble Dollar Tree items and a repurposed candle jar.
This is a great project for the holidays and it's the perfect time for making indoor DIY during cold winter days. This beauty can be a great décor piece until end of the winter!
Tools and materials:
- Candle jar
- Golden berry string
- Burlap ribbon
- Mod Podge
- White paint
- Epsom salt
1. Clean the old candle jar
First, I started by taking one of these used candle jars, after washing and drying out well.
2. Decorate the neck of the jar
Then, I got some golden berry string and burlap ribbon from the Dollar Tree and stuck them around the neck of the candle jar.
3. Apply Mod Podge and paint
Next, I took Mod Podge and mixed it with a little bit of white acrylic paint. I applied this generously to the candle jar.
6. Sprinkle Epsom salt
Then, I took Epsom salt from Dollar Tree's bath and beauty supply section.
I sprinkled it generously on the painted surface while it was still wet.
7. Seal with more Mod Podge
I let the Epsom salt dry well and applied another coat of Mod Podge for better adherence.
8. Make a bow
Next, I took farmhouse-style ribbon from Dollar Tree and made a bow.
I took 2 pieces of the same ribbon and stuck to the bow as tails.
9. Stick the bow to the jar
Using a little bit of hot glue, I stuck the bow on top of the burlap ribbon.
10. Embellish the jar
Finally, using hot glue, I stuck the greenery on top of the bow to finish the look.
11. Add a candle
Quick preview before the final review! I added a candle inside.
