I bought these old jars at the flea market last year for $4.00 each and they've just been sitting in my office ever since, so I thought I'd turn them into some cute little candles for the front porch or back patio, anywhere I could add some nice candle glow when the hubby and I are enjoying the evenings with a nice glass of wine. I love the warm glow that candles give and I thought these would be perfect for outside.
These jars are old and have the wire at the top, which would be perfect if you want to hang them from a tree branch. My trees aren't quite big enough for that yet, but that's what I'd do with these, how adorable would that be?
Initially I was just going to throw some rock in with a candle and call it a day, cuz I'm simple like that:) but, for the sake of my blog I thought I would fancy them up a bit, just using a little burlap and some vintage lace.
These are gallon size jars so they're a good size for this project.
I bought three bags of rocks and put a bag in each
I cut a strip of burlap and glued it on the jar
I grabbed some of my vintage lace from my stash, I love vintage and antique laces and buy it whenever I can
I glued some on the burlap, since one jar was not like the others I added a thin ribbon of lace and just tied it on
I took a picture of them sitting on my deck so you could see the warm candle glow:)
