Acorn Harvest Mason Jar Candles

Make these harvest jar votives to bring a touch of fall to your home.

Gather Your Supplies

For this craft you will need: 1 quart sized wide mouth Mason jar / acorns / 1 tea light and glass candle holder/ tinting spray paint / garden twine / newspaper

Tint it Up

Spread out the newspaper in a well ventilated area and apply one coat of tinting spray paint to the exterior of the mason jar. (I used the color Gold Shimmer.)

Add the Candle

Once the paint is dry on the Mason jar, add the glass candle holder to the center of the jar's bottom.

Acorn Galore

Add a few acorns around the glass candle holder like so.

Shadows Shimmer

Add a layer or two of acorns to the jar. Their silhouettes will peek through the tinted glass.

Add Twine

Cut a piece of  garden twine approximately 2 feet and wrap it around the top rim of the jar. Tie it off in a knot and trim the ends.

Light it Up

Add the tea light to the candle holder and light it up. As the dusk arrives, the Mason jar will take on a lovely golden tone.
