Our love of mason jars just won’t seem to quit and they are the perfect classic touch to holiday decor.  You can use old jars tossed around the house or pick up a box at your local shop, they are everywhere, but when you paint them your way they become personal and special.

I recall falling in love with mason jars! I have wanted to paint them and this year I did it! It’s fun and easy to make these jars with amazing Tattered Angels Decor & DIY Paints! Just paint jars, add some branches, berries and put LED candle into jars and you will have great Christmas home decor! Stars, deer, hearts, snowflakes – what you wish? – Viktoriya

Slip in tea lights or battery operated candles.
 Choose the colors that match your decor and whip up some adorable mason jars for the season.  The perfect idea for holiday party centerpieces when simple and inexpensive is the goal.  Ask everyone at the office to gather mason jars and have a painting party to get ready for the holiday party decor.  

Another fun craft you can do for party decor, add to a wreath or even place cards at the holiday table are these simple, diminutional paper stars.  Viktoriya walks us through the simple steps to makes these great stars below.
