Christmas Rustic Candle Holders

Good evening everyone
I hope you have had a joyful day.
My crafty make for you today are these glittered glass candle holders,
The glass jars are from two candles that I bought a while ago, once the candles were no more I cleaned them, making sure all the wax had gone and put them to one side, I always keep any glass jars.


First of all I masked off the edges of the jars, top and bottom, just around the rims, I just used sellotape. This can be a bit fiddly but it's worth taking time over.
I smoothed over PVA glue using a sponge then sprinkled with red glitter, tapped well to get off excess.  I lightly sprayed with sealant spray, this stops the glitter coming off, and put to one side.
I made two raffia ribbons and made two raffia bows, I made the holly leaves by using a punch on green card, shaped them and dipped them in clear UTEE in my melt pot.
I used a sprig of fern and with my glue gun I attached the raffia bow, the holly leaves, three faux berries and a glittered larch come.
Using a glue gun I added the raffia ribbon around the top of the jars and added the bow embellishment where the join was.
To finish it off I used white Flowersoft for snow, around the top of the jars and bits on the embellishment, basically where snow would land.

Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope you like my candle holders,
