The mason jar is among the most affordable craft supplies to buy in bulk, and is also one of the most versatile craft-starters, because you can make so many cool things with them.
Here’s a way to make mason jar lights — jars decorated with metallic spray paint on the outside, and tiny tealights on the inside — for a great go-to gift on that ever-growing Christmas list!
You’ll love the super-simple idea of light shining from behind a design. They’re cute, incredibly easy, and very budget-friendly to make.
These mason jar lights so easy to customize with your own touches. Spray-paint different patterns onto the jars with stencils (try a lace doily!).
You can also try creating different patterns and layering with the spray paint — and try personalizing them with sayings and creative decorations around the outside.
With so many possibilities, why not make a few and have a beautiful display of your own?
