Sparkling Snow Glass Candles
This is an easy gift that can be made up quickly as gifts for family and friends. I didn't take pics when making them as I had no idea how the ladies at my cookie exchange would like them. I made close to 50 of them with canning jars I had in the basement. I did all different sizes from the 1/2 size jelly jar all the way to a quart size jar. I even did a few of my blue colored jars, which looked amazing too. Anyway, I plan on making another batch this week so I'll take pics while I am in the process. ---- Anyway, the ladies loved, loved, loved them and some even asked for two jars.
How to Make Sparkling Snow Glass Candles
- 2You'll need a large surface where you put down paper or tinfoil to protect your work surface. Get your paint sponge and begin painting on the mod podge. If you want thicker coat of salt on the outside put a thicker coat of glue. Now, I poured the salt over the part I painted on but you could also roll your jar in the salt too.
- 3Shake off the excess and sit down on paper to dry. I only did the outside of jar; not the bottom or the rim of glass as I put material at the top. I let them dry for a few hours and then got my glue gun out and glued lace, ribbon and/or anything I thought would look nice. I had two holiday pics with mini red hollies and I cut them off and used for a decorative piece on each jar. Let them dry overnight and then filled the jars about 1/3 of a cup with Epsom salt to hold the candles in place. You can put the candles in a glass votive or just place carefully down in the Epsom salts w/o anything.
