Glowing Holiday Jar Ornament


Brighten up your Christmas with a jar craft that works as both a handmade Christmas ornament or a part of your homemade Christmas decor. Design your own Christmas jar with your favorite holiday picture.


  • Jar
  • Strechable fabric
  • Transfer paper
  • Wire
  • Tea light


  1. Make sure your jars are clean, both inside and out.  You can use any size jar you want but make sure that a votive sized (battery operated) candle can fit through the top opening.  Measure the side of your jar to figure out how wide to cut your cloth.

  2. Cut a piece of cheese cloth or other light weight cotton fabric (muslin would be an excellent alternative) to fit snugly around your jar.

  3. Find some great Christmas images or family photos to use as graphics and print onto T-Shirt transfer paper. (don't forget to reverse it if there's any writing on your image)

  4. Following the manufacturer's directions, iron your image onto the fabric.  If you're using cheese cloth make sure to put something underneath or else you'll stain your ironing board cover.

  5. Sew a seam so that it will allow the fabric to sit tightly on your jar.

  6. And now you can jazz it up with a bit of hemp cord or raffia if you like, add a tea light, and display on your mantle.

  7. This time, shrink it all down and use a baby food jar, do all of the steps above and then add a cute little wire hanger by wrapping lightweight wire around the top of the jar.  You can even string it with beads or use yarn. 

  8. So pretty!  I really love these.  I thought it would take a lot of time and effort to put these all together, but the reality is that they are sooooooo easy
