Feeling creative? I was… I found an empty jar and sample fabric from Dunelm I got the other day which I really liked as well as a spare tea light.
Here’s how I made a candle holder in about 5/10 minutes…
You Will Need…
Â A Jar
A Small bit of Fabric
Step 1: Prepare Your Materials
Take an unused and clean jar (maybe a jam jar or a pasta sauce jar?)
Find some fabric that is the width of the main body of the jar and one that’s long enough to wrap around the jar too – cut it if need be. Also, cut out a shape or two in the middle of the fabric, I went for two hearts but you can cut out circles or why not go for a moon and stars?
Don’t forget to have a tea candle light to hand 🙂
Step Two: Put It Together
Glue or stick your fabric onto the jar (or within your jar, depending on what you fancy but be careful that it doesn’t catch fire.) Place your candle inside.
Step Three: Â Let There Be Light
Light your candle, this can be tricky but try using a long lighter where you can reach the candle at the bottom of the jar.Â Now, simply watch it make pretty patterns in your room and if your tea light is scented, wait for your room to smell nice :)Â I love the writing on that fabric, the candle especially emphasises the calligraphy – it’s a beaut!
It’s super fast and easy to make and can be put together with just a few things lying around the house. What do you think of it?
