Decorating the home for the seasons can be exhausting, not only that, but expensive too. If you're on the hunt to make things look nice, but don't want to spend a ton, we have a holiday hack that is perfect.
Drum roll, please...The Snowy Mason Jar! We decided to have a bit of fun and bring another seasonal element this time: snow.
The best part about this DIY is that it takes under 5 minutes to put together and has myriad uses.
To outline a few of these uses...
- Tealight Candle Holder. Put one tealight into the bottom of the mason jar and place in the bathroom or living room! (It will help make your spirits bright...bad joke, right?)
- Seasonal Flower Vase. Spruce up the centerpiece this holiday and make a few of these jars. After, put some ornate floral arrangements inside and place side by side...voila a cheaper, yet equally lovely holiday decor!
- Diffuser Holder. Place a glass reed diffuser inside the mason jar. Following this, set the jar in an area you'd like to bring a burst of aroma to! Grab our Reed Diffuser Set 3-Pack to start.
Now the pros are settled, here's how to whip it together.
What You'll Need -
+ 1 Mason Jar
+ Epsom Salt (Can use: Epsom Salt, Magnesium Sulfate )
+ Fake Snow
+ Mod Podge Glue
How To Make -
+ First lay a towel or parchment paper down on the surface you'll be crafting on.
+ Next, coat the mason jar (except the rim) in mod podge glue.
+ Roll the coated mason jar in epsom salt (the epsom salt should be laid on a plate to make this easier)
+ Let dry on the parchment paper or towel
+ Decorate with ribbon or snowflake stickers.
+ Use as desired.
