Step 1: What You'll Need
All you need to create this gorgeous, vintage style Christmas centrepiece is 2 or 3 empty glass jars (or one big one) and whatever Christmas paraphernalia you can spare!
The only essential item for this instructable is the jar(s); you can use any leftover Christmas decorations or wrapping you have lying around to create the look you want...
- Set of 3 Kilner Glass Preserve Jars (500ml)
- Assorted baubles (small)
- Offcuts of tinsel and ribbon
- Rose shaped candle
- A bag of star shaped candle wax and a wick
- Battery powered LED star lights
Step 2: Load Up Your Jars
Simply pop your decorations into the jars and marvel at your genius!
We used 3 jars, with 3 different effects:
Simply filled with some mini baubles we had spare - red, gold, blue and white
Stuffed with a loose end of gold tinsel and topped with a rose shaped candle
We had a couple of goes with this one...
Candle - we filled the jar with a bag of loose star shaped candle wax and wick
Lantern - we used the same loose wax but this time we popped in a small set of star shaped battery powered LED lights and finished with another rose shaped candle, voila - Christmas Lantern
Arrange your wonderful, DIY, vintage style centrepiece however you like and bask in the warm glow as the compliments come rolling in!
