Getting Crafty: Mason Jar Candle Holders

Hallelujah for a holiday weekend! I'm off work tomorrow (Friday) to capitalize on the July 4th holiday. Plus hubs is off and it's nice to spend some time together running countless errands relaxing.

Tonight, hubs headed to the Orioles game, so that means I have the house to myself. Which translated to sushi, reality TV and a trip to Michaels. Which resulted in a mighty fine craft project, if I do say so myself. And now, I shall bestow this creativity on to you. 

I made these lovely little candle holders that I'll use on the deck. Or I could hang them outside in the trees for our BBQ on Saturday. 

Pretty, right? And really easy. I purchased everything at Michaels. You'll need:

  • A mason jar ($1.99)
  • Small glass votive holder ($.99)
  • Votive candle ($1.69 for 6)
  • Ribbon ($.99...I got lucky and found this in the sale bin)
  • Pebbles/gems/sand/whatever strikes your fancy (sand would look great for a beach themed party or luau) ($2.49)
Fill the jar with pebbles, tie a ribbon around the top, drop in the votive and the candle and you're done! So easy, but definitely pretty. Happy Fourth of July! I'm testing out a no bake cookie recipe for Saturday, so if that goes well, I'll have to share. Because baking and me, don't exactly play well in the sandbox, so the less I can bake, the better!

Love them! I'm a huge fan of Mason/Atlas Jars. We use them to drink out of regularly in my house and they will be used as flower vases at my wedding & also as candle holders outside.

Yours are cute though with the ribbon! I'm too plain for that :)

Today however it is very much more mainstream, as well as the
options available to us are far more plentiful and varied.

Moreover there have been many interactive toys that are inspired by the Lego toys.
Being Lego there is of course a construction element to all the games and this is a great way to get younger fans into game play beyond computers.

I am undertaking a paper on yoga and my points are how it's beneficial for guys, women, and children. Would be the rewards diverse enough to have a good paper out of it or must I adjust my factors? If you do believe this can be a good approach to lay out my paper, what will be the different advantages? You should give me some sites or other sources because no matter how I lay it out, my paper must be about yoga! Thanks!

In this kind of circumstances, it doesn't subject how totally free the schooling program is, doesn't make a difference
how sensible the child is. That kid is propably?

not going to get everything excellent grades, if he attends school whatsoever.
. . In the meantime an typical child within a typical household is completely capable of obtaining high grades, all thanks to the steady platform
a stable family members and residence can supply. People in ghettos dont do effectively in school, doesnt make a difference
if theyre black, white, or purple.
