Christmas is the perfect time to decorate your house with beautiful little trinkets and ornaments to make it look festive! When the weather turns grey and dreary, it’s always nice to have something indoors that looks warm, cozy, and beautiful. This is a video from The Lifestyle that tells you how to make holiday votive candles that look like it covered in frost and snow, and we love this idea! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa, Yule, or any other winter holiday, this is the perfect easy craft for you to add a little extra sparkle to your decorations! The way the candle shines through the frosty glass is beautiful and takes any glass candle jar from boring to spectacular! I’m thinking of putting an entire row of them on my mantelpiece in front of a beautiful evergreen garland. Just be careful about fires. Use battery candles instead of real candles if you’re putting these around flammable decorations.
There are two basic options for making these cute votive candle holders–you can use fake snow to give it a frosty effect, or you can use Epsom salts to give it a more snowy effect. We think they both look fantastic. And the project is super easy–all you have to do is coat a glass candle jar with Mod Podge, roll it in the fake snow or Epsom salts, and let it dry! For a little more holiday sparkle, think about adding some colored glitter in as well. This is an easy project you can do with kids, and they will love making plain glass jars exciting! If you try this craft, we’d love to see your pictures and hear about how it worked on our Facebook page.
