UPDATE: If you are worried about the salts falling off, apply another coat of Decou-Page on top of the salt after it has dried to the jar or you can purchase a spray sealer as well.
Hi DecoArt readers! It's Crystal from A Pumpkin & A Princess here sharing an easy holiday craft. Can you believe the holidays are almost upon us? The year seems to have flown by and the most wonderful time of the year is right around the corner! I've always enjoyed making my own holiday decor, whether it's a simple candleholder or tree trimmings. There’s something special about creating décor in your home, especially looking back at them over the years. It’s funny how styles and trends change. Well, this mason jar lantern is perfect for any and holiday table.
One of my favorite DecoArt crafting mediums is Decou-Page glue, especially on mason jars. It has a great hold and can help transform something plain into beautiful home decor. Today I’m sharing an Epsom salt covered Mason jar that would make a great addition to your holiday décor or Thanksgiving table.
- Americana Decou-Page (Glue-Sealer-Finish) 2oz - Americana Decou-Page Matte
- Epsom Salt
- Mason Jars
- Optional: twine, Christmas picks
Begin by covering the jar with decoupage glue.
Cover the entire jar with epsom salt. This will make the jar appear like its covered in snow. It also looks beautiful when a candle is lit.
Tie twine around the mouth of the jar and hot glue mixed berries and picks.
A simple and easy to make mason jar craft that’s perfect for the holiday season.
