Make these adorable Bottle Brush Mason Jar Candles for your holiday table in just a few minutes and with a few simple supplies!

Ok, I confess…I still love Mason Jars.  I know, I know they’re so last year.  But I don’t care.  I use them as drinking glasses at home, I love them to serve up desserts, I love them to store dry goods, and I love them as centrepieces.  And recently I made some adorable Christmas candle holders with them, and I love how they turned out!

My mind has been spinning with little DIY projects since I started decorating my home for Christmas.  I’m dreaming of creating wreaths, putting together table settings, and decorating my porch and home.  I feel very inspired this time of year…my goal always is to create a cozy and festive holiday home.

One project that has been on my mind for a while now are DIY mason jar candles.  A couple of years ago I made these simple centrepieces and so many of you loved them as much as I did, so I thought I would create an updated version to include one of my favourite little holiday decorations, the bottle brush tree!  With a few supplies I had on hand, I brought my simple little vision to life.  Aren’t they adorable?

And the best thing?  They’re SO simple to make, you could make 5 or 6 of them to sit at the centre of a holiday table, or on your fireplace mantle…they’re so cute and they give off the prettiest soft lighting.

Supplies for your Bottle Brush Mason Jar Candles:

  • mason jars (I use the 500 mL ones)
  • bottle brush trees (what ever size you prefer)
  • fresh cranberries
  • floating candles
  • glue gun

How to make Bottle Brush Mason Jar Candles:

  • Make sure your mason jar is dry.
  • Add a dab of glue to the bottom of the bottle brush then place it at the bottom, and in the centre, of the mason jar.  Let it sit for a few minutes to let the glue set.
  • Fill the jar with water, leaving about an inch from the top.
  • Add fresh cranberries, and the floating candle.

Tips, Tricks & Tidbits:

  • Over time, you may notice that water might turn green from the bottle brush tree.  You can just refresh the water as needed (I only had to do this once).
  • You can use any colour of bottle brush trees that you like!  White ones would look adorable.
  • If you like, tie a pretty ribbon around the top of the jar.
  • Display them on your table for dinner or brunch.  Or place them on your mantel or side tables.

I just really believe that things do not have to be complicated to be beautiful.  And often times we have just what we need to decorate, right at home.
