Gilded Holiday Mason Jar Lanterns!

Here is a great idea to add some charming holiday spirit to any table setting!  And it’s inexpensive as well!

Here is a list of supplies you will need.


Decorative snowflakes made with paper punches and quality card stock paper.
Painters Tape
Caromal Colours Sticky Size
Caromal Colours Silver and Gold Leaf (You could use the copper as well)!
Caromal Colours Toner if desired.

Wrap tape around the jar to create a guide.  Apply the Sticky Size with a foam brush and let sit for about 3 minutes.

Next, place the paper snowflakes to the mason jar.  They should stick to the sticky size.  Apply one more layer of Sticky Size over the snowflakes and let it come to a tack, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Now carefully apply the leaf and firmly press it down with your fingers.  Let the leaf sit for about 5 minutes.  Brush off any excess leaf with a soft brush.  Then carefully remove the tape.  If the leaf is too bright or shiny for your liking, you can apply a coat of Caromal Colours Toner by brushing it on and then wiping it back over the leaf to tone it down!

These are simple enough that you can let the kids hep out!  The perfect craft for the DIYer!  And they would make great presents for teachers!  Have fun!

Get a little paint on your socks!

A while back Traci Hickingbottom from Lake Charles contacted me about the Caromal Colours products.  After a little discussion, she decided to throw a Caromal Colours party!  The party was held at the beautiful home of Lori Benoit, as Traci’s home is basically under contruction.  Let me tell you….these ladies weren’t afraid to “get a little paint on their socks”!  We had the best time doing samples from the distressing and barnword kits!  I also showed them how to gild an ornate applique using the copper leaf.  At the end of the evening I think everyone was really pleased with the class!  I can’t wait to see what they do with what they’ve learned!  Thanks ladies….hope to see you all again soon!
