Mica Flakes on a Mason Jar! Simple Tea Light Candle Jars.

jolly jingles Mason Jar Candles
I saw this idea out there on the web and wanted to give it a try. I had Mason Jars in my craft area so I figured they would work. I had found these perfect larger tea light candles at Ikea and figured they would work inside the jars.

Candle-JarI painted the bottom of the jar with Gesso and then sprinkled some of the Mica Flakes over the wet paint. Let them dry. I then did spray them with a Matte Finish Spray to prevent them from flaking off the jar.

The First Edition Designer Paper that is wrapped around the jar started at about 2 1/4" X 12". I tore the top and bottom edges until they were down to 1 3/4". Highlight the torn edges with some of the Tea Stain ink from the Vintage Kit. I wrapped the paper around the jar and used mini-glue dots to adere it to the jar. Mason Jar Tea Light Candle Holder

The twine is wrapped around the jar twice and then tied into a knot. I stamped the "peace on earth" from the Jolly Jingles Wheel on to Very Vanilla Card stock and then punched it out with a wide oval punch. It is matted with a piece of Real Red card stock cut out with one of the tags from the Lots of Tags Sizzlit.

I used a Real Red marker to color the one sentiment from the Jolly Jingles Wheel and stamped it. I did take the wheel apart and have directions for how to do that in this post.

I could even see leaving the tag off and lining them up on a deck. I hope we have our deck finished by next winter and then I can put them outside. This year they will have to be inside.
