Reuse an Old Candle Jar to Create This Christmas Candle Holder

Use an old candle holder or any empty glass jar to create this gorgeous candle holder for Christmas. And it also won't be costing too much money as most of the things I am sure you already have at home.
Paint the jar in any colour you wish using chalk paint (I used white)
Pick your paper napkin and seperate the top layer. Cut out the image and decoupage it on the top of the jar, let it dry. Once dry sand it over slightly.
I wanted to use some of the snow paste I got so I got a little messy with it. The effect is amazing though! I sprinkled some glitter over and sealed with clear sealant in the end.

    Read the blog about this project - one question: what is your formula for homemade chalk paint; exactly what products did you use? Thanks
