I hope everyone had a lovely time over the holidays. Christmas may be over but New Year’s Eve is on the way. In the spirit of getting ready for New Year’s Eve, I have been testing out some DIY projects and making them as eco friendly as possible. Mason jars are trending right now, and often reused to house candles. I created a pot of gold so to speak, by repurposing a glass jar with glitter accents. It turned out to be a sparkling new candle holder. I admit, glitter is not the most eco friendly choice, but the jar can be reused over and over again as a sparkling candle holder. It’s fun for parties and of course New Year’s Eve.
A Pot of Gold: DIY Candle Holder
You will need: a glass jar, glitter, mod podge and ribbon.
I chose not to completely cover the jar in gold glitter, so I reused some ribbon from Christmas presents and wrapped it around the jar, taping the ends together so it would come off easily. I then painted mod podge over the exposed areas of the jar.
Sprinkle glitter onto the mod podge painted areas. Be sure to do this over newspaper or over a cardboard tray so that you can catch the glitter and refill the glitter bottle. Let it dry.
Add a candle and voila! Enjoy!
Have fun and enjoy!
With love, xo
