Ambient lighting made easy....

A while back, I saw these really neat candle holders in a home magazine.... and I know we've all said it, and I certainly say it all. the. time. "I can make that." But, do we ever really make what we see? Well, speaking for myself; No, I never really get around to making whatever it was.... Until now, that is! Me, being the queen of the quick craft; it was a project that fit right with my crafting criteria: fast and easy :)

Simply put, I took an empty salsa jar (for some VERY strange reason, unknown even to me, I have great difficulty letting go of empty jars.... weird or what? please say 'or what'). Aaaanyway, I grabbed my white cotton yarn and crocheted a light and airy 'sock' to slip the jar into; added a tea light candle; lit it up; and VOILA! Instant ambiance! I LOVE IT!!!! I'll definitely be doing a tutorial for these soon.... EDIT: Tutorial for this is available through my Etsy shop.

Now, to find more jars.... is it wrong to rifle through your neighbours recycle bins? .....What?

  1. I'm going to have to try this! I hang onto jars as well...I have a whole cabinet full of them and they have been sitting there forever! I'm glad to know I'm not alone!
