Christmas Jars

I have a hundred jars in my cabinets.  If you follow me, you know that I love a good jar makeover, so I save every one!  You might also know that I'm kind of a hoarder.  It's a trait I share with many of my crafty friends.  This year I went a little Christmas crazy and turned some of my instant coffee jars into stained glass, sparkly vases and lanterns.  Yup, you can either put a candle in them OR a pretty Christmas flower arrangement.  My favorite part of this project was frosting the top and bottom of each jar using simple white spray paint.  Have fun and don't forget to Make Your Mark!
Filled with Christmas foliage!
Filled with candles!
