Christmas Decorating Idea {Mason Jar Candles}

Happy Friday everyone!

Here is another Christmas decorating idea from the presentation I gave a few weeks ago. It's really simple actually ~ just mason jars filled with Epsom salt and a votive candle.

The Epsom salt looks like snow inside the jar. It's a nice touch for a porch or for along a walkway outside. You can find the salt in any drug store and it's really inexpensive.

I filled three quart-sized mason jars and put them inside an old homemade flower box that I picked up at a yard sale.

I added a few greens and pinecones to the box. And, of course, I just had to paint a number on the window box! Am I obsessed with numbers? Yes, I think so.

This idea is not original to me. I think I first saw it on Melissa's blog The Inspired Room. Her blog was one of the first decorating blogs that I read years ago. Melissa has tons of great decorating ideas ~ you really should check it out if you haven't already.

This week she featured my moss wreath on the DIY section of her blog. And the decorating website Houzz will be featuring the wreath in the next few days. How fun is that!

Have a great weekend!
