Mason Jars Part 1 - Candle Holder

Our new mason jars are in and the color for this year is PURPLE! Inspired by the new color, I'm going to have a 3 part blog featuring different ways to decorate your jars.

My first project is a mason jar candle holder.

You will need the following supplies:
-1 pint size mason jar
-E6000 glue
-1 bag glass gems (any color, I used Clear Luster)

 Starting at bottom of jar, place a small amount of E6000 where you are going to place your first gems.  Also put some glue on a few gems.  Wait about a minute or two for the glue to get a little tacky.  One by one place your gems on the jar.  They may slide a little so hold in place until they start to set. Place gems on 1 row at a time. Make sure they are close to each other and there are no big gaps.

Once you finish placing gems on jar, let it dry for 24 hours before handling. 

Use either a battery operated candle or Firefly Lights to give your candle holder a nice glow.
