How to Paint Your Mason Jar

  1. Paint your mason jar in your chalky finish color. The chalky finish helps so that you do not have to prep your surface at all. Be sure to apply one to two coats of paint so that it is opaue. 

  2. Allow that to dry completely. 

  3. Then, with your large pouncer create the head of the snowman with white paint on the bottom of the jar. 

  4. While that is still wet add rosy cheeks with the same pouncer and pink paint. Allow to dry.

  5. Now add a big carrot nose on the top of the snowman, and a nice dot smile with the black paint. 

  6. Now paint a snowflake above the snowman's head and dot snowflakes all around the jar. using the back of your paint brush. Allow to dry.

How to Make the DIY Candle

  1. On medium-high heat place your glass measuring cup into the large pot and fill the pot with water. 

  2. Add your four cups of wax flakes to the measuring cup and allow to melt.

  3. Once your wax has melted remove it from the heat and let it cool down a bit before adding your fragrance oil.

  4. Take a small spoon of wax and drip it into the bottom of your jar and secure the wick onto the hardening wax.

  5. Once you've poured your oil into the wax, give it a quick stir and slowly pour it into the jar, using a clothespin if needed to secure the wick.

  6. Allow the candle to harden for several hours and then snip off the top of the wick so it is a reasonable size for the candle.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

When I first noticed this project I thought it would just be for the painted jar. What a nice surprise to see that it includes the instructions for making the scented candles as well. I havent heard of a pouncer. Maybe someone here can let me know what a large pouncer is?

This is a really cute gift idea. Thank you for sharing this video! I have never made candles before, and your video makes it look so easy. I always thought it would be much more complicated. And the painted snowman on the jar is way too adorable! )
