Make a Mason Jar Votive

16 May

If you have a jar, a piece of paper, a pair of scissors, a piece of tape or string, and five minutes, then hot dog! This is the post for you.

Inspired by a post at Going Home to Roost, I decided to fancy up our table a little bit for a little shindig we had last night.  I took an old jam jar with a missing lid and cut a long strip of paper just slightly shorter than the height of the jar.  I then cut out a little heart in the middle of the strip, wrapped it around the jar, taped it shut and tied a little piece of twine around the hold thing before popping a little votive candle in the jar and admiring my new little candle holder.  Make one now.  It’s easy! It’s cheap! It only takes five minutes! Those are all compliments when you’re talking about craft projects and not people!
