These flocked jar candle holders can be used as centerpieces for your table setting, as mantel decor, on shelves or even in bathrooms. They're quick and easy to make. The best part is, most of the supplies are things you might already have on hand during this holiday season. If not, don't fret, all the materials are inexpensive and readily available.
Flocked Jar Candle Holder
To make flocked jar candle holders you will need glass jars, faux snow (or sugar, salt, epsom salt, white glitter, etc), glue, pinecones, twine or ribbon and battery operated candles. You will also need a small paint brush for the glue.
The first thing you will need to do is brush glue onto the top portion of your jar. I recommend covering about one third of the jar going higher in some spaces, lower in others.
Then you will sprinkle faux snow onto the glue. Lightly press the snow down to be sure it sticks.
It should look similar to this when evenly coated.
While that's drying lightly coat the tips of your pinecone with glue.
Rather than dumping the snow onto the pine cone, roll it in the excess snow. This way snow doesn't get caught in the pine cone and only coats the parts that are brushed with glue.
While the pinecone is drying take your twine or ribbon and tie it around the top of the jar. You can choose how long or short you want the the twine or ribbon to be.
Once that is done use hot glue to adhere the pinecone to the jar. If your pine cone is large you may need quite a bit of glue. You can sprinkle snow onto the glue before it dries to camouflage it.
At this point your jar should look similar to this. Now you'll want to dump about an inch or two of faux snow into the jar. This creates a base for your candle to sit on.
Insert your battery operated candle.
Now you have beautiful flocked jar candle holders to use around your home or gift to friends and family. Use different size jars and lengths of twine or ribbon for variation. Glass jars do not need to be purchased brand new if you do not already have them on hand. Thrift stores typically have an assortment of glass jars for low prices. I always recommend checking out your local thrift for supplies before purchasing brand new. I hope you enjoyed this fun craft and take the time to create your own flocked jar candle holders this holiday season.
