These are just a couple of the mason jar luminaries we have been working on. the first one is a fall themed one. I stippled yellow, orange, and red paint in vaguely leaf like shapes and then attached a silk leaf using jute.
The next one I used paint pens to draw snowflakes and added a blue snowflake ribbon and blue stones around the candle.
I hope this gets you inspired. You might even want to try these with you kids.
