Hey Fashionistas,


Christmas Day is just around the corner so I thought I need a cozy fall inspired candle holder which will add the perfect touch to my Christmas decoration. Instead of going to the store I decided to make it a DIY project. I’m going to share a simple and pocket-friendly DIY mason jar candle holder. This project is also great and safe for kids. What I love most about it is the price! Everything cost me under $5!

What you need:

  • Mason jars, you can find $1 jars at the Dollar tree or the 99 cent store
  • Mod Podge
  • Brushes or you can also use your fingers
  • Napkins of your choice (yes regular napkins)

How it works:

1. Choose a napkin of your choice. I went with a pretty leaf and flower design. Cut out the leaves / flowers and put them on the side. You can also use real leaves and press them, but I did not have the resources of obtaining pretty real leaves. 

2. Apply Mod Podge all over the sides of your jar.

3. Place your leaf or napkin design onto the jar and press into place. Brush over your design with more Mod Podge.

Use the flat end of your brush to create a stippled pattern in the areas NOT covered by your design. This step will create a pretty pattern when the light shines through these non-covered areas.

5. Let it dry and add a second coat of Mod Podge. Again use the stipple brush technique on the open areas.

6. Let the jar dry overnight. When dry put a tea light in your candle holder ( I prefer scented candles) and there you go! 

My fall inspired candle holders and myself are ready for the X-Mas!
