 Christmas and Winter Craft Project- “Glass Jar Votive”

This jar once held a salsa sauce and is wider but not as tall as most common jars. Because of the size, it seemed perfect to create a votive for both Christmas and for the winter season.

Time Required: Only a few minutes for the actual crafting but drying time needs to be considered (drying of paint and then drying of the glue)

Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List For One Jar:

- short wide mouth jar
- white paint and paint brush
- paper napkin with blue winter motifs
- decoupage glue and flat brush or sponge to apply it
- light blue translucent ribbon
- tea light or battery operated tea light


Christmas Jar Votive Tutorial 1
1. Paint a very thin layer of paint onto the outside of the jar and let it dry. This step is necessary, so that the paper napkin motif will be seen once it is glued onto the jar.

2. Choose the paper napkin motifs you would like to use. This particular napkin hat rows of stars and snowflakes, which were perfect for this project. Remove and discard all but the uppermost layer of the napkin.

3. Brush a thin coat of decoupage glue onto the jar. Then apply the napkin motifs onto the glue. Once adhered, paint a coat of glue gently over the napkin to seal it. Let the glue dry before continuing.

Once the glue is dry, then tie a ribbon around the jar to finish off the project.
