Mason Jar Holiday Candle

Ever have one of those serendipitous moments where something out of place becomes an inspiration?

I was in one of my local craft stores recently and found this little votive holder sitting on a shelf where it wasn’t supposed to be. It is one of the ones that just holds a little votive, and it has a flared top.

Right around the corner from it was an end cap full of mason jars.

And I wondered, would the little votive fit one of those jars?

Well, look at that. Lots of space below to fill and customize for any holiday or tablescape.

I filled it with gold glittery apples.

Then with red glittery icicle garland.

How about a little of each?

Then I went back to the gold apples and added a bow.

The best thing is there is no glue involved. The votive just lifts out and the bottom filler can be changed over and over!! How neat is that?!!  Update – after this idea was published, I figured out that the metal ring would screw on over the candle holder.  So now, I do that too.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you’ll stay a bit and look around.  My blog is about a lot of things, crafting and sewing, quilting and cooking, reading and decorating.  If you like this Holiday Mason Jar, see the Beaded Holiday Jar for another idea.

    I Think I will put some little pine cones that I have sprayed gold and silver and another one with some greens and battery lights and another one with peppermint candies.
