DIY Holiday Glass Candle Display- An Upcycled Craft

Learn how to create a beautiful holiday glass candle display using upcycled materials with this DIY craft project. Perfect for adding a festive touch to your home decor. Find step-by-step instructions and inspiration for this creative and sustainable holiday project.

Recently, I have been feeling very festive and have been enjoying decorating, baking, and much more. I noticed that I had a few glass jars and old candle jars around my home, and I wanted to create something simple. I thought a candle display would be great and easy to create. If you have any pasta jars, old candle jars, or any glass jar this craft is perfect for you!

For this project, you will need the following materials:

  • Frosted Glass Spray (I used Rust-Oleum)
  • Gold wire
  • Stretch cord (optional)
  • Holiday greenery, berries, and any holiday decoration can be added
  • Flameless tealights
  • Mini ornaments (I used one for this project)

You can find flameless tealights at your local Big Lots store. A pack of 10 with extra batteries costs only five dollars, which is a great price!

Applying frosted glass spray

To start, prepare an area to spray your glass jars. You can use a plastic bag and ensure that the area is well-ventilated.

Next, take your frosted glass spray and apply it evenly over your glass jars. You can also spray the inside of each jar.

Once you have applied the spray, set your jars aside and allow them to dry completely. I allowed my jars to dry for 35 minutes, but depending on the weather and how many coats you apply, you may want to let them dry a little longer. My garage was pretty warm, and I also had a fan on.

Decorating your glass jars

To start, wrap the top portion of your glass jars with gold wire. I wrapped the top of my smaller jars with gold wire and used a stretch cord in the middle of my smaller jars. It was much easier to add greenery and tie it off using the gold stretch cord. You can continue with the gold wire or use a stretch cord.

Next, add glitter berries to both jars and one mini ornament to one of the smaller jars. You can also add holiday greenery, berries, and any other holiday decoration to your liking.

For the larger jar, I wrapped gold wire around the top portion and middle of the jar. I then added two glitter berries and a leaf to the jar. This simple addition adds a touch of elegance to your candle display. You can also add holiday greenery, berries, and any other holiday decoration to your liking.

To add wire to your medium-sized jar, wrap the wire around just the middle section. When you get to the end of the wire that was wrapped around it, create a small design with the wire by twisting it into a spiral shape. Add two strands of gold wire and repeat the spiral shape. Add two glitter berries, and that’s it!

Next, add flameless tealights to your jars and display them in a window, on a staircase, or on a tray with some other holiday decorations. These beautiful glass jars are perfect for adding a touch of elegance to your festive decor.
