You can never go wrong with some candles and Mason Jars are great for this

These are really pretty in the image but for your Easter Project you may just want to go with something really cool like tinting your Mason Jars.

To do this you need:

Your choice of size in mason jars. For this project you will need three. The small size is good for this, but so is the medium.

You need some modge podge, food tint, (green, yellow, and red) water and few small glass mixing bowls (1 for each color)

Put about 1/4 cup of water into the glass bowl and a few drops of  red food coloring to it…. the more food coloring you add the darker the color will be. You want the color to appear in your mason jar as pastel so don’t go overboard with the coloring.

Now in your mason jar put about 4 tbsp. of modge podge, then add the red water to it.

Swirl this liquid around until it totally coats the inside of the jar.

Pour out the mixture and turn the jar upside down on a paper towel to drain completely and dry. It will take about 1/2 hour.

Do the same for the yellow and the green.

For the candles you can use tea candles or to be on the safe size buy the little battery operated flickering candles.  If you use this type you can nestle the candle onto a bed of pretty colored cello straw or even real straw.

This is a beautiful example where the vase could be easily swapped out and replaced with one of your tinted Mason Jar.

What you want to do is gather a bunch of twigs and simply spray paint them in your color of choosing. Let them dry well before decorating them. I did one similar to this last year and hung a bunch of brightly colored plastic eggs from them and got lots of oohs and ahhs.
