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.
Make a Mason Jar Tea Light Easy Christmas DIY with Free 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.
This project is perfect for beginners! We’ll use an SVG file and iPad to create a tea-light decor project. Perfect for holiday table decor or a gift idea for teachers or coworkers – I’m sure it will bring you ‘joy’ when creating it!
Supply List for Glass jar
This quick project with only a handful of supplies creates a pretty decor item.
- Cricut (Any cutting machine will work with this project)
- Design Space
- Snowflake SVG or Tea Light SVGs
- Glass Jar
- Glass Paint (chalk Paint)
- Ribbon, twine for accents
- Rhinestones or Pearls
- Coffee beans
- Tea Lights
This time, I didn’t water down the chalk paint like I usually use on furniture. I wanted a thick coating with brush strokes to add some texture. It definitely took 2 coats.
I used Annie Sloan clear wax that same day to wax the chalk paint. After it dried, I removed the snowflake vinyl and filled the jar with vanilla coffee beans I had lying 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 afterward.
