Materials List

  • Materials Frosted Glass Spray - I used Rust-Oleum
  • Gold wire
  • Stretch cord (optional)
  • Holiday greenery, berries, or any additional holiday decoration
  • Flameless tealights
  • Mini Ornaments (I used one for this project)


  1. Start off with setting up an area to spray your glass jars. I used a plastic bag, and I also made sure that the area was ventilated.

  2. Take your frosted glass spray, and apply it over your glass jars. I made sure to spray them evenly, this way I did not have to worry about the spray dripping.

  3. Once you have applied your spray, set your jars aside, and allow them to completely dry. I allowed my jars to dry for 35 minutes. Depending on the weather, and how many coats you apply you may want to let it dry a little longer.

  4. Begin with wrapping the top portion of your glass jars with your gold wire. I went ahead and wrapped the top of my smaller jars with gold wire, and I decided to use some stretch cord in the middle of my smaller jars. It was much easier to add my greenery, and tie them off using the gold stretch cord. You can continue with the gold wire, or you can use stretch cord.

  5. For the smaller jar: I added a few of my glitter berries on both jars, and one mini ornament.

  6. For the larger jar: I added my gold wire on the top portion, and I also wrapped some gold wire in the middle of the jar. I added two glitter berries, and a leaf. I wanted to keep it simple.

  7. When adding the wire onto my medium size jar, I went ahead and wrapped the wire around just the middle section. When I got to the end of the wire that was wrapped around I created a small design with the wire by twisting the wire into a spiral shape. I added two strands of the gold wire, and repeated the spiral shape. I added two glitter berries, and that was it.

  8. Add in your flameless tealights, and display your beautiful glass jars.
