Decorating Candle Jars and Lids is a fun and easy project for all ages. You can use many different craft items to embellish your jar and lid. If you are really creative, you could even make a snow globe out of lid. But we are going to go over a few inexpensive ideas to turn your Jar into an attractive looking and still functional decoration.
Most jar lids come with a plastic under cap, which can be taken off by a screw driver. In this space you can add many different things, from dried flowers to an elaborate scene.
One of my favorite things to do is to add fake flowers and greens to my lid, typically using same color flower as my jar wax. Everything can be placed at top of lid and adding green leaves to keep it secure.
Sand, Rocks or Marble pieces can add a different look to lid. One great idea is to use different layers of colored sand. Just make sure you fill it to top, because under cap will have a little bit of space. You'll get same look as those colored bottles that you can buy at fairs. For rocks, try using some Aquarium rocks, as they come in multiple colors.
You can add a more personal touch by adding a picture or personal message in lid. Just cut picture to fit lid and put some kind of background behind it. One idea is to use a nice piece of colored felt or velvet fabric. By adding enough fabric, you can be assured picture will stay where it is. I do not recommend using glue on top of lid, as it will be visible.
