You can make this cool wintery decoration with only three ingredients! Add some embellishments and an flameless votive and you have a cozy, snowy, glowy decoration just right for the mantle, the table, or a corner of any room.

Thanks to Alice at the Salem store for the original project that inspired us to make more.


  • Mason Jar
  • Mod Podge
  • Epsom Salt
  • Flameless Votive
  • Ribbon, Jute, or other embellishments


  1. Cover jar with Mod Podge glue.
  2. Sprinkle salt over gluey jar or roll jar in salt.
  3. Let dry and then decorate

Optional: For the peek-through window, leave a patch unglued on the jar. If you want to be more precise, cut the shape you want out of self-adhesive vinyl and place that on jar before you glue. Make sure not to have too much glue over the shape or to wait till after dry before removing.
