A simple luminary DIY featuring a mason jar, old fabric and mod podge!
I recently saw a few different variations of this DIY floating around the internet and so I decided to try my own take on it! Here I have created mini luminaries out of a mason jar and an old spaghetti sauce jar!

  • How to make a votive / candle holder. Fabric Jar Luminary Diy - Step 1
    Step 1

    So basically, you will paint the inside of your jar with a layer of Mod Podge and sprinkle with some glitter if you want. Then cut the fabric strips about an inch and a half wide and as tall as the height of the jar! Dip the strips in Mod Podge and lay strips inside of the jar. Make sure the strips overlap so you don't have any glass areas exposed.

    This is how it should look finished. It may take up to a day to fully dry so be patient.

    And that's it! Let it dry and then fill with flowers, tea lights, or whatever you would prefer! :)

Cool idea, but I am guessing that it has to be a sort of thin fabric if I plan on putting tealights(they are the battery operated ones, wouldn't want to set the fabric/glue on fire) inside of them. I need to save up more jars in either to do this project! Happy

Wow! This is nice! This would be the perfect way to recycle the bottles I had accumulated from the past holidays.
