Supplies for making candle jar.


  1. Using masking tape, mark off middle section of jar. Place star stickers randomly around the jar. I made my own using a stencil and large label paper. Paint the bottom of the jar with the red acrylic paint. Paint the top of the drawer with blue paint.
  2. adding stickers to the jar.
  3. Repeat painting layers until you have the desired look. I painted about three or four layers of paint, allowing it to dry thoroughly inbetween coats.
  4. Painting the jar red on the bottom.
    Painting the jar red, white and blue.

  5. After completely dry, use a razer blade to carefully remove tape and stars.
  6. Removing star stickers from the jar.
  7. Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes to cure the paint. Paint a little modge podge in various places all over the jar and add glitter. Glue a ribbon around neck or embellish with whatever you desire. I had a couple of scraps of star garland and glued that onto the jar. Place tealight on the inside of the jar and enjoy.
