Step 1

Wash canning jars with soap and water. Let dry.

Step 2

Download our Mom Stencil or create your own and trace it onto painter's tape. Cut the stencil out with a crafts knife and stick it on a jar.

Step 3

Apply three light coats of Valspar Frosting spray paint to the jar. Let dry and remove the stencil.

Step 4

Remove the center of the lid and spray-paint the rim (we used Valspar Frosty Berry and Everglade Glen). Add a candle, then get glowing!
