Candlelight at Christmas-time is probably prettier than candlelight at any other time of year. Today I’m making easy DIY Christmas luminaries using empty jars, wax paper and simple marking pens.
Measure and cut a piece of wax paper to fit around your clean glass jar. I used a pretty blue metallic marker to draw snowflakes on the wax paper. Be sure to let set and completely dry before handling it. You could draw holly or anything else Christmas-y that you are capable of drawing. (I am barely capable of drawing a snowflake…) I also trimmed the top edge of the of the wax paper to give it a bit more of a decorative edge.
Wrap the wax paper around the jar and secure with tape. The bigger the jar, the better. Wax paper is flamable, so be sure to keep it away from the flame. Make sure the top edge lines up… you can always trim the bottom edge to fit.
That’s it. Add a candle and enjoy!
