Creating Homemade Christmas Decorations with Glass Jars

Posted by Simon M on

With Christmas just around the corner, what better way to get into the festive spirit than by crafting your own Christmas decorations, ready for December? Glass jars can be transformed into beautiful and unique ornaments that will add a touch of elegance to your home. In this blog post, we'll explore some creative ideas for making homemade Christmas decorations using our glass jars from here at Glass Jars and Bottles

  1. Snow Globes

Snow globes are a timeless classic and you can easily make your own using a glass jar. Start by choosing a small figurine or a plastic Christmas tree that fits inside the jar. Secure it to the inside of the lid with strong adhesive. Fill the jar with water, a pinch of glitter, and a few drops of glycerine to make the snowflakes fall gently. Screw the lid back on tightly, and you have your very own enchanting snow globe.

  1. Candleholders

Glass jars can also be used to create stunning candleholders. Simply place a small, scented candle in the bottom of a clean jar and light it. You can leave it at that, or for an extra touch of magic, tie a festive ribbon or some holly around the neck of the jar. The warm glow from the candle will create a cosy and inviting atmosphere in your home.

  1. Santa's Little Helpers

For a fun and whimsical decoration, transform your glass jars into Santa's little helpers. Paint the jars with red and white stripes, and add a black belt made from ribbon around the middle. Use googly eyes and a red pom-pom for the nose to create a charming Santa face. Fill the jars with small candies, like candy canes or chocolates, and you'll have adorable and edible decorations.

  1. Winter Wonderland Lanterns

Create a winter wonderland scene inside your glass jars by adding some bath crystals at the bottom to resemble snow. Place small decorative figurines, like miniature Christmas trees, reindeer, or snowmen, inside the jar. Add a tea light or battery operated candle to illuminate your winter scene.

  1. Festive Vases

Glass jars can also serve as charming vases for holiday floral arrangements. Fill them with fresh or artificial flowers in classic Christmas colours like red and white. Tie a ribbon around the neck of the jar for an extra festive touch. These DIY vases will add a touch of elegance to your table or mantlepiece.
