JOY JARS - christmas tutorial

 
 
I've nicknamed this project JOY JARS for the first set I ever saw
done by Miss Niamh of Kathleen Thomas Designs
 
 
This is a simple tutorial with big impact and continued use.
It's also another use for our ever loving Mason Jars we ALL collect.


 
Supplies:
 
Bath Salts - $8 Walmart 4kg
Metal Spray Paint
Tealite Candles
Adhesive Letters
Canning Jars w/lids

 
Start with getting your lids painted in the color of your choice.
Using a metal spray paint will ensure durability.

 
Fill the number of jars you need for your perfect word with your Epsom Salts.
Fill to the bottom of the threads.
 
 
Next adhere the letters to your jars.
Use the opposite side to any original lettering your jars already have. 

 
Add your tealite.
If put at the right level to the jars threads the flickering candle light will bounce off the rings.
 
 
After the holidays,
remove the candle, screw the lids on, and add them to your bathroom decor
with the original lettering facing out.

 
You now have the perfect excuse to take a nice long bath.
