    With roaring fires and tea lights aplenty, Christmas is a busy season for the humble matchstick! In this week’s Modern Country Makes video, we show you how to make this pretty storage jar; not only does it look pretty on mantles, a sandpaper lid for striking means it’s practical, too! We used mini Kilner jars (from 99p, John Lewis) and burnished metallic paint; the two combined give an elegant and shimmery finish that reflects flickering light beautifully. Thank you to John Lewis, Fred Aldous and Hobbycraft for all your help.
