Winter candle DIY

As someone who orders a lot of things online, I often have packaging lying around the house. Today I was getting ready to throw out some polystyrene, when I had a brain wave.


I had seen this picture on pinterest a few weeks ago and wanted to create something similar for myself, however, I wasn’t sure what they used for the snow or what I had that would give a similar effect.


I decided to free some of the polystyrene balls and see if they created a snow-like effect.

I then did the same with two larger jars and tied bits of grosgrain ribbon and lace round them.

The look of the jars changes slightly depending on what you wrap them with so try to choose something that matches or complements your decor.
