Simple DIY St. Patrick’s Day Candle Holder Theresa February 20, 2017 crafts, Holidays 35 Comments If you are looking for a simple way to re-use household items to make a festive DIY St. Patrick’s Day craft, you’re in the right place. When I ended up with a mason jar from a Christmas gift, I decided to have some fun. For a simple, fun craft idea, you can make a simple mason jar candle holder centerpiece for your table. DIY St. Patrick’s Day Candle Holder Re-inventing the decor of your home after every holiday can be simple. With Valentine’s Day over, it’s time to put away the red and pink hearts. For a thrifty craft idea, add green decor by re-using items you already have. If you have an old mason jar and tissue paper from an old gift, this craft is not only easy to do, but it is also budget-friendly! How To Make A DIY St. Patrick’s Day Candle Holder First, collect everything you need. You should have at least two different colors of tissue paper. Cut the tissue paper into small squares, about one inch across. Whether you tear the squares or cut them precisely, make them look similar in size and texture. Double check that you have the other supplies. For the candle holder, you can use any size mason jar. Since I already had a small mason jar, re-using it added an eco-friendly and budget-savvy touch to the project. To decorate the jar, you will use Mod Podge. Even though you can buy tissue paper at the store, go green this St. Patrick’s Day and save tissue paper from old gifts. Re-using items makes this a budget-savvy craft. Start with one side of the mason jar first. Paint the the Mod Podge on the jar. I used a paintbrush, but you can use a variety of paint tools to apply it. Then, layer the green squares. When you press each one down, check that they adhere to the jar. Usually, the Mod Podge soaks through the tissue paper well enough that even after layering two or three squares, the tissue paper stays on well. Working in small sections will help keep your jar neat. Try out your ideas on one side of the jar before working on the rest. After practicing on one side, go all the way around the jar. Add Mod Podge to each section and layer the tissue paper. You can add multiple layers to make a variety of shades, but double check that you leave some spaces lighter to allow the light to shine through. When you completely cover the jar with the tissue paper, apply a layer of Mod Podge over the entire jar. Doing an additional layer will make the tissue paper firmly stay in place. Apply a second layer of Mod Podge to the entire jar. Finally, let your mason jar dry completely. Around an hour later, the Mod Podge will dry completely clear. Place a small tea light candle inside. To keep the jar from getting too hot, I only light the candle for a short amount of time. You can also buy additional accessories – including a wire candle holder to elevate the candle – for your DIY St. Patrick’s Day mason jar candle holder. With a few simple steps, you can create a beautiful DIY St. Patrick’s Day mason jar candle holder. Pin this idea to save it for later!
