Candles + Mason Jars

Alrighty!  It's Wednesday!!  I am pretty excited about that.  MR.P and I have nothing to do tonight and I couldn't be more excited!  We are actually going to cook dinner and take it easy tonight.  Not something we've gotten to do in a while.

So onto this cool idea.  I was over at my friend's house the other night and I noticed her candle (sorry, no picture).  It was in a mason jar and had super cute layers.  I asked her where she got it and she said she made it!  She said every time she has a candle thats getting low she just throws it into the mason jar!  Isn't that soo smart!!  And cute too!!  I will definitely be starting this project soon.


It's pretty much a free project since we all have candles laying around.  And you can probably find an inexpensive mason jar at Hobby Lobby or somewhere similar.  It would even be cute with twine or ribbon tied around the top :)  Even a cute label you could print out yourself!

Such a fan of the mason jar! We use them as drinking glasses & get more compliments on them. They're super fun for a backyard gathering!

I use mason jars for seashell candles! I put a tall candle in the middle and fill the rest up with small shells - very cute on either side of a centerpiece on a table!

Hope you're well, Beth!

Mason jars are so universalthey can be casual or dressed up to be elegant. I love that about them. I will have to try the candle thing, cool idea.
