I have a quick and easy little Christmas project for you today…Mason jar Christmas candles…that still have a lot of seasonal impact, I think. I am going for a more rustic look this Christmas, so these candles add the perfect touch to my decor!

Baby Kitty As usual, I am assisted by my co-host Baby Kitty…who was distracted by the birds at the back yard feeder!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Mason Jar Christmas Candles As you can see, there are three different candles so I will show you one by one how to make them. Easy peasy!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Mason Jar Christmas Candles The first one is the simplest…just a candle in a pint Mason jar (held in place with a wax button…found at World Market) surrounded by fresh cranberries. I finished it off with some twine around the mouth and a sprig of boxwood. Fun!

CONFESSIONS OF APLATE ADDICT Fall Mason Jar Candles …it’s because it’s the same jar I used in my Pottery Barn inspired fall Mason jar candles! You can find a complete tutorial for adding the wire handles by clicking here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Mason Jar Christmas Candles3 But I think this one is my favorite! I was inspired by a similar candle that I found on Pinterest from a British home decor magazine and decided to try my hand at it. I have to tell you a secret…this is not as easy as it looks because boxwood sprigs float! I used a small nut from my tool drawer as a weight and attached it to the sprigs with white thread. Problem solved! Then just add a floating candle and some cranberries!

And there you have them…my Mason jar Christmas candles! The cost…virtually free since I had everything on hand! I am going to enjoy these! And…I have some more easy Christmas ideas that I will be showing you because if you know me, you know I am all about fun, easy and practically free projects!
