These mason jar luminaries are such a fun and festive craft project. By switching up the size of the jars or the wording, you can create a really unique holiday decoration. I recommend using straight sided mason jars that have a smooth finish, and electric tea lights – especially if there are small children around.
I love the frosted letters on these jars as they give out such a soft, ambient light. The perfect thing for a holiday mantel or table decoration.
- Rust-oleum Frosted Glass Semi-Transparent Finish Spray

- MambiSticks – Letter Stickers
- Hemp Rope – Red

Start by spraying your mason jars all over with the Frosted Glass spray in a well ventilated area or outside. Allow the jars to dry thoroughly – we left ours overnight.
Remove the letter stickers from their backing paper and pat onto a piece of fabric to reduce their tackiness. Place a letter sticker on the front of each mason jar and check that they are at the same height.
Using the metallic gold spray, spray each mason jar entirely and cover the letters. You can also spray paint the mason jar lids if you want a more cohesive look.
Once the gold paint is completely dry, peel back the letter stickers to reveal a ‘frosted’ letter impression.
Tie rope around the top of the jars and hang a jingle bell from the loose ends. Place an electric tea light inside each jar and pop on the lids.
