Reuse Old Jars Into Holiday Decor

December 3, 2013

I love glass jars and always looking for ways to re-use them.  I found this great DIY idea on HGTV where you can repurpose your old glass jars into holiday décor.  This DIY tutorial is created by Hannah and here are the instructions.  You can visit HGTV for more great DIY ideas for holiday décor.

Step 1: Gather old jars. Cover your workspace with newspaper.

Step 2: Mix equal parts water and vinegar in a spray bottle.  Lightly mist your first jar.

Step 3: Immediately follow up with a layer of spray paint. 

Step 4: Let the jars dry for about 10 minutes.  Then, repeat the process.  This time you will not let the paint dry.

Step 5: Instead, spray with the water and vinegar mixture again and use the paper towel to dab away some of the paint.  This effect will make it look a little more vintage and add a great place for light to show through.

Step 6: Let cure at least 24 hours before using candles inside.
