Holiday Candle Glitter Jars
• Wash your jar(s) with hot water, allow to dry.
• Using rubbing alcohol and a lint-free rag, clean again.
• Paint the inside of your jar with mod podge.
• Sprinkle with Epsom salts. Epsom salts are mostly water so not flammable. As a matter of fact, I got a few granules on the candle wick and it took F-O-R-E-V-E-R to get that wick lit! I had to scrape off the granules, and then wait for the wick to dry. It still took a while for the lighter to catch.
• Tip: don’t let your candle wick come in direct contact with the Epsom Salts.
• Epsom salts start clear but turn white the longer they are exposed to air. In a week they will be white as snow, so perfect for a holiday craft!
• Swirl the Epsom salts around on the inside of the jar.
• Allow to dry.
• Add some dry Epsom salts for weight.
• Add a candle, light and enjoy.
• To make glitter jars, using adhesive spray give the inside of a jar a good spritz all around.
• Quickly dump a decent amount of glitter inside my Mason jar. Swirl until the inside was completely covered.
• After I completely covered the inside of my jar, I tapped the excess onto a sheet of aluminum foil for later use.
• I allowed the gold glittered Mason jar to dry overnight.
• I poured a small quantity of Epsom salts into the bottom of the jar, added a candle and lit it.
• This is one beautiful jar! I am just not sure it is non-flammable, so be careful if you do this – I wouldn’t want you to start a fire in your house! Flameless candles may be a better choice for this one.
• There are all sorts of ways to decorate jars using Epsom salts and glitter: inside, outside, both inside and outside, just the rim - you are only limited by your imagination!
• This is a great beginners holiday craft!
