This adorable Candle Holder project is one of my favorite Christmas crafts since it is easy and quick. In addition, we like to herald in the Christmas season with an Advent Wreath complete with candles.
However, I wanted to make a modern advent wreath, don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the traditional ones, but why not make my own?

How to Make Christmas Candle Holders
These frosted Christmas Candleholders turned out perfect for our Modern Advent Wreath. We will be enjoying these pretty frosted candles all winter.

Applying Mod Podge to Jars
While the Mod Podge was still wet, I sprinkled Epson Salt over the jar.
Vinyl Star Decal
To add a little fun to my one jar, I decided to cut out a vinyl star with my Cricut Maker and apply it to the jar before painting on the Mod Podge.
Next, I brushed on the Mod Podge and then sprinkled Epsom salt over the wet Pod Modge.
Frosting the Candle Holder with a Christmas Star
While the Mod Podge was still wet, I brushed on the Mod Podge and then sprinkled Epsom salt over the wet Pod Modge.
Star Decal Removal
I removed the vinyl star before the Mod Podge dried; as a result, it was easy to remove. The area where the star was is a clear glass area in the shape of a star.
Decorating Christmas Candle Holder Jars
I decorated these jars for Christmas; however, I will use them all winter by removing the number tags.
Also, I used a chalk marker and added 1, 2, 3, and 4 to the tags for each week in Advent. I did not want the tags to be attached permanently; therefore, I tied them on easily removable.
I tied black and white baker’s twine and round the rim of the jars and then attached the number tag.
I used some red and white ribbon on the small jars, so they look like candy canes since it coordinated with my Christmas tree and Christmas Decorations 🎄.
Next, I used hot glue to attach a wee bit of greenery to the front side of the jars.
Then I tied bakers twine and tags on the jars for Advent. However, you can easily change the tags for any holiday or season. Finally, I added scented tea lights.
These almond butter jars are part of my Advent Wreath display. I used three slices from a fallen tree and re-cycle jars to add “snow,” greenery, baker’s twine, number tags, and tea lights—the star cutout in the area that had the vinyl start.
