DIY Snow Covered Mason Jar Candle Holders

*The following post contains affiliate links

Mason Jars are one of my favorite and easy DIY crafts to do.  In the fall I made leaf covered mason jars.  They glowed so beautiful on my mantle all fall, so I had to make another season appropriate version for the fall. Enter the snow covered mason jar craft!

If I can make these, anyone can.  Really, they’re super easy. 

Here is what you’ll need:


  • Use the large bowl and fill it with the Epsom salt.  
  • Use the sponge brush and paint the modge podge glue around the jar.  Be sure it looks even.
  • Place the jar in the bowl and sprinkle the salt all over the wet glue.

  • Let it dry.
  • Spray acrylic spray around snowy jar.
  • Now decorate with the twine, picks, add ribbon, etc – get creative!
  • Use a small tea light and watch your snowy jar glow!

The acrylic spray is optional, but expect some of the “snow” to fall off.  (My 2 year old enjoys flaking the snow off slowly….mom just loves that!)

One of the easiest winter crafts I’ve ever done and I love how it looks on my mantle.  It’s a craft you can keep out all winter, and not just during the holidays.  

I’d love to hear from anyone that’s made this craft before!  How much do you LOVE your jar!!? 🙂

    I made some of these wintery jars recently, too. They’re breathtaking, aren’t they. Thanks for sharing at the #ThisIsHowWeRoll Link Party.

      It was so simple! I think it took more time preparing then actually crafting! I love the glow they put off too! 🙂

    Did you use matte or glossy for glue and sealer?

  • Sandy November 29, 2017 at 11:04 am

    I found you via Pinterest and am making jars as we speak. I added some glitter to my epsom salts for even more sparkle!

    • Jessi Living Lovely November 30, 2017 at 10:33 pm

      That’s a great idea! How well does the glitter stay on? I may have to try this!

  • Sandy Laferriere November 29, 2017 at 6:39 pm

    I love this idea! Thank you, 😊☘️

    These look great! Would regular or mediterranean salt work?

    • Jessi Living Lovely December 7, 2017 at 6:38 pm

      Thanks! I’m thinking it might melt with the glue? Possibly? Let me know if you try it!
