Fabric Candle Votives - NorthShore Days


 Hi Everyone,

It's Nat from NorthShore Days here, and today I'm going to share an oldie but a real goodie...

The days are growing shorter and there is a definite chill in the air - yup Winter is on its way and I'm not a happy Winter person.

The other day it was dark and dreary and I needed to cheer myself up a bit so I made these cute little candle votives. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures while I was creating them but they are so simple to make.

I used some baby food jars that I found in the back of my cupboard, double sided craft tape and fabric... I also added a button threaded onto memory wire to add an extra fun element.....
 Doesn't this fabric make you happy?  

I love it - and will be making a table runner out of it soonish...
So literally all I did.... cut out a piece of fabric, add tape to the back and stick onto the jar. Thread a button onto wire and wrap around..... How simple was that??? 

And look how fab they are.....


Pop in a tea light candle and they are gorgeous, lit up at night......


 They make me smile, sitting up on the kitchen window sill....

And they definitely did a great job of cheering me up on that dreary Autumn day. 

 
Take Care

  9. I haven't had baby food jars for so long it makes me wonder if I ever actually had any babies to begin with. I guess I'll have to find someone with babies and steal theirs. The jars, not the babies. :) These are awesome!
