For this DIY project, you must first create the snowy effect of your jars, which is super simple. Mix 80g/1/4 cup of Epsom salt with 1/2 teaspoon of white flakes and stir. This quantity will be enough for a medium-sized jar. Then take a sponge brush, apply a layer of white glue (Mod Podge) to the entire glass and carefully sprinkle the mixture on top using a teaspoon. Seal with clear spray paint and let dry well.

Finally, all that remains is to add your decorative elements to give the final touches to your festive tealight holders. Start by wrapping jute thread and securing with hot glue. Do the same with the fir branches, red berries and pine cones. Place a LED candle in each jar and that’s it!
