Make some beautiful votive candle holders while listening to beach music. It’ll beat the end-of-winter-blues in no time.

The best thing about mason jars, other than all of the cute crafts you can do with them, is that they can hold a whole lot of moonshine!
There’s no shortage of crafts that you can make with mason jars. Whether you want to turn them into new planters for your indoor garden, paint them and turn them into custom glasses for your kitchen, or create decorative candle holders, mason jars make the perfect medium for all of your crafting needs.
Jam With Joy Rocks
Joy rocks are the crafting sensation that’s starting to pop up everywhere. They’re pocket-sized positivity that you can place all around the area where you live.
All it takes to make a handful of joy rocks are smooth rocks and some paint. Some people put positive messages on their joy rocks while others just paint them beautiful colors. Either way, getting your friends together for a joy rock painting session and then going out together to place them around town is a great way to get your craft on.

You can decorate with heart shaped paper plates, pour some champagne, and start creating things together.

If you’re in the mood for some rustic-themed crafting, pick up some pallets and burlap and go to town.
