Old Jar Candle Holders


I am not normally a horder but for some reason I keep glass jars an it's about time I found some pretty uses for them, so here's the first (of many hopefully), mini lanterns. Jars with many flat sides work best, I bought some picture wire to wrap around for the handles and used some charms from an old bracelet to make them a bit different. Glueing the candles in place also helps when you try to light them!

That's so pretty. I love how you took something so simple and made it very elegant. The charms are a nice touch. :)

Woop for hoarding - all the best people do! And didn't it work out well. The simplicity is cute and they'll look great once you have loooads of them.

I'm finding lots more jar collectors in blog land than I thought! Welcome to the club. For some reason it just doesn't seem right to throw out perfectly good glass.
