DIY Snowflake jars

This weekend was cold and wet which got me in a crafty  Christmas mood.
I decided to experiment a little with some paper snowflakes, recycled jars and spray paint.
First  cut out a snowflake
(good tutorial here, yup it had been that long)
I then applied tape on the back making sure not to cover any of the openings.


Adhere the snowflake to the jar.

Spray paint the jar with a light coat of white paint.

Let it dry and then give the inside of the jar a quick shot of spray paint, it will make it look like snow on the outside.  (I didn’t have the candle in it at that time) 
Remove the snowflake and Voila!~A zero cost project~

Can’t wait to make more and experiment with different patterns. So easy and fun! 


Don’t worry my candle is “faux”  three for 99 cent at the dollar store.
Thanks for stopping in!
