White Christmas Mason Jar Luminary
What I like about this project is it’s from Martha Stewart…the queen of DIY.
Most of us have mason jars around our homes and even if you don’t, they are not very expensive. The medium jars are around $6 a case and the large jars are around $11 a case.
Either one would be great, but I would personally use both large and small jars for this project. Ginger over at Ginger Snap Crafts used the large jars, but I like the look of small and large together.
Ginger used salt to frost them, and I’ve heard you can also use Epsom salt too which is also super inexpensive at around $8 for an entire bag.
As are your choice of decoration at the top, I will do these with pine, pinecones, and berries but bells, ribbons and bows are great too!
Ginger lays it all out for you in the tutorial, and your imagination can change it up however you see fit.
