DIY Christmas Lanterns {Tutorial}

I've got so many things I want to create for Christmas! Gifts, Decorations, Cards & more. So I thought I had better get started now! So I bring to you, my first Christmas DIY of the year! It's a super quick & easy little craft, but it looks so effective!

You Will Need:
* A Jar
* Epsom Salt
* Tea Lights
* Pinecones
* Twine
* Leaves
* Glitter
*  White Paint Pen

1. I started out by wrapping twine around the rim of the jar, tieing in the pinecones & a few leaves too. I tied it all into a little bow.
2. Pour a bit of Epsom salt into the bottom of the jar, however much you want, to make it look like snow.
3. Pop a tea light into the centre of the salt. Add leaves around the tealight, just a few. (I used tweezers to arrange the leaves).
4. Next, I added a bit of glitter to the Epsom salt to give it that magical sparkle!
5. Finally, I decorate the jar with a few small white polka dots, using the paint pen, as a finishing touch!
