  • Twist your length of twine around the top of the mason jar, covering the entire lip. Secure by tying, or by adding a small dab of hot glue. 
  • Trim the ends off of your twine. 
  • Fill the mason jar halfway with water. 
  • Arrange the pine sprigs, as desired. 
  • Fill the mason jar to the 3/4 full mark and then add the cranberries or beads, and nestle the floating candle securely in the cranberries. 
  • You can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil (optional).
  • If you are planning to gift your jar, glue the twine instead to the lid and omit the water.
