D.I.Y - Recycled Jar Candle Holders

Next time you use a jar and decide to throw it out, think about what you can make before you do so. 
You will be amazed what you can recycle and reuse.

To make these jar candle holders it really doesn't matter what size the jar is. I have used these pasta sauce jars, as we always have them in our pantry.

Step 1. Soak them in hot soapy water for 15min to be able to clean and take the label off.

Step 2. Wrap one with string, one with some tape and sticky dots. With the other jar, use a hot glue gun and write "Love" or anything else you feel like on the jar.

Step 3. Spray paint them white using a High Gloss quick drying paint. (Colour is up to you)
Once dry you can remove string, dots, tape and glue.
You can also add some wire to them to make them into hanging candle holders.

Step 4. It's up to you, but I made them a bit more pretty by added some string & washi tape to them.

Step 5. Add candles (I used tea candles) to make the prettiness glow.
These make a perfect addition to any room and as a perfect give to someone special.

I hope you enjoyed my first quick tutorial for this blog, I am sure they will get better as time goes on.
