Crafty DIY: Turn a plain glass jar into a festival of colors

13 Aug

There is only one way to turn a plain glass jar…

into a festival of colors and candles…

Just go wild…

I’m not going to take you thru a step-by-step tutorial, because the whole idea is to forget yourself and make something your way.

Put a tea-light in them and you’re good to go. These candle-holders look awesome indoors as well as outdoors, and they twinkle nicely around the pool.

Tips & Glues

  • Use white wood glue – not hot glue
  • Use natural fabrics (this one is Syrian traditional cotton called “Saayet”), beads, silk threads, wire, make your own tassels, add ribbons, buttons, charms, and anything that makes your heart bubble
  • Gold paint is from Pebeo Vitrail, which gives a stained glass look.
  • Before you go to sleep, light your candle, switch off the lights, drink a cup of milk, and enjoy the beauty of color & freedom.
