Yarn Candle Jars

Jars are wrapped in red yarn to create simple & festive lighting.

To make these, I tied yarn around the rim of the jar and started to wrap it around. I left a bit hanging off the knot so that I could tie the end to it to secure. Trim knot closely.

    Hi! I’m Brazilian.
    Your blog is amazing!

    About this post, did you made that white circle behind the candles on the first photo? If it was, can you teach it for us?

    Thank you!
    (and sorry for the poor English. =) )

      Hi Ana – thank you for your comment. That wreath is made from cupcake liners pinned to a straw craft wreath. It is a project that you can find on Martha Stewart – here is the tutorial from her site –
      Hope this helps – and good luck – it is an easy wreath – but a bit time consuming to make.
      Take Care, Camilla
