Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Clean out your mason jars and make sure they’re free of any debris. Here you’ll get creative and put your stickers on them any way you like. This is a great part for kids to get creative.

Step 2

Take your sticker-ed mason jars outside and start spraying painting them. I used a matte chalky finish but any kind will work.

Step 3

Allow them to dry for at least 60 minutes. Proceeding to the next step before they are completely dry make damage the candles.

Step 4

Slowly and patiently peel off the stickers. It helps to push them in from the edge and peel slowly. If you peel to quickly you’ll remove some of the spray paint.

Step 5

Fill with pebbles and add your tea lights. They are ready to go.
