Jar Candle Holder

Taking just about any canning jar, you can decorate the outside or inside, and put a candle safely in the top.

Approximate Time 30-120 minutes

Supplies:

  • canning jar with wide mouth
  • old craft items like thread or
    - pretty shells or
    Ad

    - decoupaged advertisement or
    - Dollar Tree colored rocks or
    - 16 bean dried beans mix or
    - food colored water or
    - pretty colored sand...
  • used plastic container from flavored applesauce 6 pack
  • emergency or votive candle
  • buttons, etc.
  • Pringles lid
  • hot glue gun, optional

Instructions:

Decoupage items will be needed if you choose that form of decoration. If not, simply fill the jar with water and food coloring, rocks, pretty sand, shells, old craft items, buttons, beans or anything you want. If your items are messy, you may want to put some hot glue around the top of the jar and set your applesauce container down and make it a permanent fixture. If not, simply set it on top and light the candle. You can always keep the lid to the jar to seal it when not in use, or just cover the candle with a Pringles lid.

Editor's Note: We worry about the flammable nature of the applesauce cups. It works well for displaying a candle, but with lighting the candle, the plastic might burn. An old custard cup or glass or metal small candle holder might be safer, if you plan to light the candle.

The concern is a good one. I like the emergency candles better, as they evaporate or just melt into a liguid when done. But, I like the alternative. Monkey dishes work well, too. Thanks for the feedback. Safety first in all things, for sure!

You can purchase a small flower pot shaped glass holder at dollar and craft stores that fits right inside a canning jar. The flower pot shape gives it a lip that keeps it from falling in entirely. I used to get then for .50 - they may run closer to a 1.00 now.

Monkey dishes are the little white dishes that restaurants use to serve sauces with. Ever go to an Asian restaurant? If you get the sweet and sour pork, your mustard and seeds usually come out in a little white dish. I think they got their names because people would be served things you eat with your fingers.
