Frosted Candles DIY
Frosted Candles DIY turned out so pretty for our Christmas Advent Wreath. We will be enjoying these pretty frosted candles all winter. See the how-to video So easy and quick to craft, but so pretty too. Save those re-cycle jars for this project. HERE.
So easy and quick to craft, but so pretty too. Save those re-cycle jars for this project.
I added the vinyl star to the jar before painting on the Mod Podge.
While the Mod Podge was still wet I sprinkled Epson Salt over the jar.
Before the Mod Podge dried I used a tooth pick to lift the edges so I could remove the vinyl star to leave a clear area in the shape of a star on the jar.
Next I cut some greenery and baker's twine. Also, I used a chalk marker and added 1, 2, 3 and 4 to the tags for each week in Advent.
I used hot glue to attach a wee bit of greenery to the front side of the jars.
Then I tied bakery twine and tags on the jars for Advent. However, the tags can easily be changed for any holiday or season. I added tea lights.
For the week four candle, I used my Cricut Maker to cut out a vinyl star to create a star shape void. How pretty it turned out. For more Christmas inspiration please visit my blog too.
The almond butter jars are part of my Advent Wreath display. I used tree slices from a fallen tree and re-cycle jars that I added "snow", greenery (Dollar Tree), bakers twine, number tags and tea lights.

These are so pretty and I can see that they'd be easy to make with other themes as well. I'd like to know if the salt flakes off when you touch them or if it would sweat in higher humidity? Once dry could a person add another layer of glue over the salt to help prevent all of those problems??? Love how you can make something so beautiful out of things that cost literally almost nothing. Thanks for sharing!
Is the heat from the candle a problem?
