Hello Hello everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful and fun Thanksgiving. Ours was extra special this year because we had the rare opportunity to spend it with my husband's family. That normally does not happen since they all live very far away. So to have been able to spend this entire holiday weekend with my husband's family was truly a special treat.
I am also super excited to start my holiday posts here at Rosemary & Thyme. Christmas is one of my favorite seasons. The house just takes on a different life. It is full of color, light and fun gatherings with family and friends. And this year, I hope to host a Christmas Tea with a couple of local blogger friends if they accept my invitation. Keep your fingers crossed.
I have started with Christmas decorations in the dining room. I can now say that it is about 95% done. I will then have the Foyer and Living Room to complete. But that will be have to wait until he weekend ahead. I am out of energy this week. Especially when a busy work week awaits.
Today however, I am sharing a fun and easy Mason Jar Candleholder tutorial that is perfect to decorate any part of your home for the holidays. So please sit back and enjoy the tutorial.
Here Is The Material List For The Mason Jar Candleholders:
- Tacky spray (To glue ribbon on Mason Jar)
- Ribbon (One of your choice)
- Fresh Cranberries
- Christmas sprays for decorating jar ( I chose red berries and a green spray but you can be creative)
- Fresh greens (I picked a few from my own garden)
Instructions For Decorating the Mason Jars:
Cut enough ribbon to cover the circumference of the Mason Jar. Spray tacky glue on the back of the ribbon and press it around the jar until you get to the back. Make sure it is neat and centered.
Tie the twine around the mouth of the Mason Jar. Make sure to cut enough to make a pretty bow. I placed mine of the left side but this is all up to you.
Place lace ribbon and greenery tucked behind the twine to secure it and then add berries.
Here is what it should look like by now.
Now add your fresh greens... See top view below also.
Here is the final piece. Isn't it lovely??
Lastly, fill the Mason Jars with water, add fresh cranberries and place a tea light right on top. You will love this pretty candleholder. It reminds me so much of and old fashioned Christmas.
I hope you enjoy this tutorial. And please give it a go. You will definitely love the end result.
Thank you for visiting my blog today. I wish you all a great week.
