Winter Candle Jars


In our home we try to upcycle and reuse items as often as possible. Before you toss glass jars into the recycling bin – try making these easy candle holders. Start by soaking off labels and cleaning jars thoroughly. Wrap jars in paper doilies, tie with jute and drop in a white votive candle.


Use large and small doilies as well as silver and white to create an interesting variety.


The more the better- a grouping of these on a tray is really striking in a dimly lit room. They are like delicate, illuminated snowflakes- perfect for a winter get together with friends.
