How to make Christmas lantern from a jar

Candles and lanterns are an indispensable element of Christmas, so we couldn’t miss them. I present a very simple way to conjure lanterns from a jar. Christmas lanterns from a jar can be decorated as you like. I decided on natural Christmas tree branches, cones, red fruits and a bow.

How to make a Christmas lantern from a jar

⭐️ The first step is to paint the whole jar with glue, only the neck should remain unglued.

⭐️ Then cover the jar thoroughly with artificial snow. To get rid of excess snow, you can gently tap the bottom and scrape off.

⭐️ Now wrap the jute twine around the neck of the jar several times and tie it. Before you make a bow, put some decorations, e.g. a Christmas tree branch. Secure it with a bow. I tied the pine cone with an additional string.
