Painted Desert Mason Jar Votive Set

Saturday, February 22, 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., or 12:30 a.m. Musette Young and Deb Betz are so clever. They spied an item we sell in the shop and said, “Let’s make that a class!” Two weeks later they delivered the most adorable desert-themed lights and a new workshop was born. Everyone will paint two frosted glass Mason jars with a cactus motif – Deb and Musette will guide you through it and teach the basics of working with acrylic paints. Battery operated twinkle lights are included in the project. Mason jar votives are perfect on a patio or as an accent inside. (Or a very cool night light.) This workshop will take you about 40 minutes to complete.
