DIY Silhouette Mason Jar Luminary


Every Christmas can be a white Christmas with this snow scene luminary. Elegant and festive, this luminary can grace your mantel or end table for the holidays – both before and after!

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Time required: 1 hour
Age range: 10+

Things you’ll need:
Clear mason jar
Rusty tin barn cutout
Rusty tin pine tree cutout
Artificial snow spray
Flickering tea light
Scrapbook paper
Pencil
Scissors

Clear tape

Things to do:
1. Cut the scrapbook paper to the height you desire for the jar. Make sure it’s at least as tall as your tallest tin cutout.

2. Determine how long to make the paper so that it reaches all the way around the jar with some overlap. Mark the overlap points.

3. Trace your rusty tin shapes onto the paper.

4. Cut out around the shapes – you’ll be cutting out the paper around the tracings, and not cutting out the parts you traced. Make sure to keep the areas completely connected, or you won’t be able to wrap the jar later. For instance, in this example the trees are connected to the barn on both sides.

5. This is what your work should look like.

6. Tape the strip into a tube that will fit around the jar later.

7. Spray the jar with the snow spray. Use more spray on the top of the jar, but be sure to have some on the bottom to represent snow on the ground.

8. This is what the jar should look like after spraying and allowing to dry.

9. Turn on your tea light.

10. Wrap the paper around the jar and enjoy your winter-long white Christmas!
