Easy Christmas DIY with Free SVG

Mason Jars so stinking cute for every home decor thing. Right?? Although, any glass jar will work for this Easy Christmas DIY with free SVG and chalk painted on glass jars.

Most people throw out old pickle jars. Not me. I wash and save them for years before tossing them into recycling. LOL! Until now! Now I can chalk paint them for every holiday. Today I used one with our free Snowflake SVG.

I cut a few shapes on my Cricut. Stuck them on the upper portion of the flat side of the jar and painted away.

It’s really that simple.

I uploaded the SVG Snowflake I used here into my SVG Shop so you can download it for FREE!

This time, I didn’t water down the chalk paint like I usually do on furniture since I wanted a thick coating with the brush strokes. Definitely took 2 coats.

To wax the chalk paint, I used Annie Sloan clear wax that same day. After it dried, I removed the snowflake vinyl and filled the jar with vanilla coffee beans I had laying around.

If I made them today, I would use the Rustoluem Chalk Paint. It is a better price, easier to paint with, and doesn’t require waxing afterwards.

In my stash of goodies, I have a box of automatic tea lights (that come on for 6 hours at the same time each day) and I put one of them inside.

Next, I went to my favorite store … MY stash of supplies … I added some twine, raffia ribbon, and pearls as accents and tada!

Cute and easy Christmas decor.

Next, I’d like to try some fall leaves, or maybe some egg-shaped ones for Easter? Or even a flower or a simple circle to leave up all year.

Happy Crafting!
