Another old candle jar idea

 

Remember this post  about upcycling these old candle jars:

So NOW I have some candle jars with the GLASS lids.  blech!  Not much I can do to disguise the fact that these used to contain candles.  Still, it’s a pretty cute and simple idea:

1.15.13 stars projects 044They are the perfect size to hold one of the DT nests with eggs into the jar; just plopped it in!  (well, I ‘sparkle varnished’ the eggs and added some reindeer moss to the nest first!)

1.15.13 stars projects 045Rummaged through my rubber stamps to find an appropriate one to make into a tag to tie onto the jar with a piece of pretty ribbon.

1.15.13 stars projects 087

You could even do this with jars that you don’t have a lid for, and tie a piece of muslin, burlap or cheesecloth over the top; which might actually look BETTER than using the original glass lid.
