I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a ton of time on my hands for craft projects. I wish I did. Even more so, I wish I could get paid to browse JoAnns and Michaels because I could spend hours walking their aisles for supplies for all of the crafty projects I will probably never complete. (Thanks, Pinterest!) But I’m telling you right now – don’t just pin this project to make later only to forget it even existed. Make it. Still pin it (just because I’d really appreciate it), but make it. It only took me ten minutes and probably took longer getting the supplies together and taking the pictures than actually working on the project.
One Quart Mason Jar
One Pint Mason Jar
One Jelly Jar
Glue Gun + Glue
Step 1. Cut the lace and the burlap to be about the size of the jar. I cut mine a little longer and overlapped them when I glued it down, but you can cut it to be exact if you’d prefer not to overlap them. Step 2. After the glue gun has warmed up, draw a thin line of glue along the edge of the lace and press down on the glued area against the jar as straight as you can. Step 3. Repeat step 2 for the other end and wrap the unattached end around the jar. Pull tight and press down where the glue is to attach. Step 4. (Optional) Depending on the height of your burlap, you may want to cut or fold it over. I chose to fold it over for a darker look from the candle, but either way will work. If you do fold it over, make sure the fold makes one side a little longer to be the outside piece so it looks a bit more polished.
Step 5. Repeat steps 2 and 3. Do the same thing you did with the lace for the burlap. Step 6. Set the tea lights in the jar (I used battery operated, but regular ones will work fine) and set up to display on your table!
