Supplies needed to create this mason jar candle.

Step 1: Create Light Window

We will be covering the majority of our jar with chalkboard paint, so for the light to shine though, we need to leave space. I sketched out an oval to frame the lighting on the mason jar, but you can also do a heart, circle or any shape you like!

Step 2: Paint Jar

Use a small brush to paint the whole jar, minus the bottom, lid and your window. This may take a few coats, so allow each coat to dry before applying more paint.

Step 3: Decorate Jar

I added some twine to frame my oval. First, hot glue around your window frame, then apply twine (or ribbon, rhinestones, pom poms- whatever!). I cut mine a little short to make way for a bow on top. Make a bow from a separate piece of twine, then glue to top of your frame.

Step 4: Decorate Lid And Draw

Next, I added some simple strips of twine wrapping around the lid of the jar to finish up the look. Write a short poem, phrase or even a picture on the mason jar to give this craft some personality! Then add tea light and enjoy the soft glow. So cute, right?
