Labor Day has come and gone which means that its time to pumpkin everything!
Nothing says “welcome fall” like preparing for impending doom, right? Right. Hurricane Irma is coming for us, and it doesn’t look like she’s stopping. So, I went shopping for the essentials last night- the essentials being 50 pounds of food for my dog and a new ID tag (in case of emergency) for her collar. Doggo>everything. I would have gotten water, but alas, the shelves at the three different stores I went to were all cleared of water. I will try again tonight. I have until Sunday, so fingers crossed. As of now, there is no indication of any impending evacuation orders for Central Florida, so it looks like we will be riding out the storm at home with lots of snacks. Fingers crossed we at least keep power so that I can watch Harry Potter and Star Trek over and over until its safe to leave my house again.
This is the best hurricane meme so far. IRMA GERD! *slaps knee* Gets me every time.
Anywayyyyyyy… as promised in my last post , I have completed another successful fall-themed mason jar craft, and I am going to share with you! #generous
DIY Fall Mason Jar Luminary
What you’ll need:
- (1) Mason Jar
- Mod Podge or Glue/Water Mixture
- Epsom Salts
- Battery Operated String Lights
Coat Jar with Mod Podge
Use Brush to apply mod podge or 1/2 glue 1/2 water mixture evenly to the surface of the mason jar. If you want a more clear (see through) look, I suggest using a glue/water mixture. If you are indifferent, Mod Podge will do the trick! Make sure that it is applied evenly and there are no drips!
Add Epsom Salts
Immediately after coating the jar, sprinkle a thin layer of Epsom salts evenly onto the surface of the jar. This will create a frosted look and will help the jar to glow. Let the jar dry overnight.
Add jar embellishments
I chose to use the same floral embellishments that I used on my candle in my last post , as well as some burlap ribbon. I used hot glue to apply the embellishments.
Make sure that the string lights are working properly and then put them in the jar. Its that simple! I got my lights in the dollar section at target, but you can also find them pretty reasonably priced at most craft stores or an amazon here !
And there you have it! A very simple mason jar luminary! Use it as a bedside lamp, or just as a cute seasonal decoration!
I will go ahead and apologize in advance if I am MIA for the next week or so- lets see what this hurricane does!
Until next time,
