Last night the smell of vanilla candles filled my small condo. It was cold outside, and my pup Chandler was buried beneath a throw blanket on the couch. Cupcakes were baking in the oven and I was mixing up some salted caramel butter cream frosting. I was in my element.
I love my alone time when I am working on a project – baking, crafting, even blogging. It’s relaxing but because I am doing something, there’s a sense of accomplishment.
The candles burning last night were in my new mason jar candle holders that I made last weekend. I did this same project last year and liked it so much I knew I had to make another one. It is such an easy craft and I think it is adorable.
Here’s what you need:
1 mason jar
Fresh, dry brightly colored leaves
Acrylic spray (optional)
With a paintbrush or sponge brush, apply a thin layer of mod podge to outside of a clean, dry mason jar.
Place leaves on jar and position as you like.
Apply another coat of mod podge on top of leaves.
Let dry for 15 minutes and then apply another coat, if needed, so that leaves are flush against the jar.
Once completely dry, spray with an acrylic sealer to set leaves and mod podge.
Voila! There you have a simple, easy candle holder.
Have a great weekend my friends!
