Every year it seems like I want to do more holiday crafts whether they’re simple DIY ornament ideas or big Christmas projects. Today I’m going to show you a ton of fun Teen Christmas Craft Ideas perfect to kick off your holiday season and really get into the spirit of Christmas. You’re going to love all of these DIY Christmas projects, so let’s get started!
DIY Christmas Jar Candle
This DIY Christmas Jar Candle idea is the perfect personal gift for your loved ones! Who wouldn’t love a nice hand painted candle that burned with one of their favorite holiday scents? I know I would appreciate how much thought went into such a unique gift. Don’t get overwhelmed by the process, I promise it’s not nearly as hard as you may think, I actually find it quite relaxing!
- Sixteen Ounce Jar
- Four Cups Soy Wax Flakes (Thirty-Two Ounces)
- Two Ounces Peppermint Fragrance Oil
- Waxed Candle Wick
- Single Stove Burner
- Large Pot
- Large Glass Measuring Bowl
- Twine String
- Color Of Your choice Chalky Finish Paint
- Acrylic Paint In White, Black, Pink, and Orange
- Paintbrushes/ Large Pouncer
Step 1- On medium-high heat place your glass measuring cup into the large pot and fill the pot with water. Add your four cups of wax flakes to the measuring cup and allow to melt.
Step 2- While your wax is melting, paint your mason jar in your chalky finish color, then allow to dry. Then with your large pouncer create the head of the snowman with white paint on the bottom of the jar, and while still wet add rosy cheeks with the same pouncer and pink paint. Allow to dry.
Step 3- Now add a big carrot nose on the top of the snowman, and a nice dot smile with the black paint. Now paint a snowflake above the snowman’s head and dot snowflakes all around the jar. Allow to dry.
Step 4- Once your wax has melted remove it from the heat and let it cool down a bit before adding your fragrance oil. Take a small spoon of wax and drip it into the bottom of your jar and secure the wick onto the hardening wax. Once you’ve poured your oil into the wax, give it a quick stir and slowly pour it into the jar, using a clothespin if needed to secure the wick.
Step 5- Allow the candle to harden for several hours then tie a twine bow around the top of the jar and display in your home or wrap as great personal gifts!
