You Will Need
Large glass jars (clean and with labels removed)
Small American flags
Mod Podge Gloss as a sealer
Votive candles or tea lights
Making The Mason Jar Candles
Start by removing the ‘flag pole’ from your mini American flags.
Next, apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the back of the flag.
Position the flag on your mason jar. Make sure you smooth out any air bubbles that may form under the flag.
Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge on top of the flag and leave to dry. This will ensure that the flag sticks to the jar.
Place your votive candle or tea light inside the jar.
Optional: You can place sand or rocks inside the mason jar before the tea light. This will add a bit more stability so the candle doesn’t move around. It also makes the jar look a little prettier.
