12 Days DIY Christmas 2014: Day 3

Today’s project , I am inspired by the idea of gift in mason jar that I saw on Pinterest.

But I did not use mason jar. I recycled candle jars 🙂


To clean the left over candle wax in the jar, pour hot water in the candle jar and let it sit for few minutes until all wax come loose and they will float on the surface. DO NOT TOUCH the jar because it will be super hot! I learned that in a hard way.

When you see the wax floating and the jar is cool down, use your finger or plastic spoon to get them out of the jar. Then wash it clean with soap. I let it dry for over night or you can just wipe it dry with towel.

Once it is clean and dry, you cam decorate it or leave it clear, all up to you. I decorate it with Gold Polka Dot Washi Tape and Ruby Chevron Washi Tape.

Then I filled the jar with Kisses in Christmas colors. Then I added a tag that I cut a bunch of then with my Silhouette Cameo.


I stamped the sentiment from Made From Scratch stamp set with Topiary Exclusive Ink Stamp Pad and the heart with Cranberry Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. I cut the heart and glued it on top of the other one. Then I cut the label shaped and added on the tag using 3D Foam Tape for some dimension. I added a little gold christmas tree using Liquid Glass. Because regular craft glue won’t work on gluing glittery shape.

Finally, I added the tag on the jar lid with Topiary Mini Chevron Ribbon.
