Fauxflake Jars

We are prepping for my daughter’s birthday so we have been making some decorations to go along with her requested theme. I let my little one’s choose their themes, so after much thought and mind changing by my almost 4 year old…she decided on a “pink snowflake buwwthday pawwty.”  

Here’s a simple and kid friendly project that we made to add a little frost to the party:

Recycled jars
Faux snowflakes
Mod Podge (or white glue)

Step One
Paint jar with a nice, thick layer of mod podge.

Step Two
Using a sprinkle and smoosh method…cover jar with snowflakes.

Step Three
Allow to dry, drop in a votive and you have yourself a snowy little glow jar.

I love how these turned out and the kids had so much fun making them - and even more fun making a mess with the flakes.  More birthday projects to come!
