Doily Candle Jars

This week I spent some time jazzing up some baby food jars.  Krissy has kept a crazy amount of baby food jars which she uses for candle holders. In fact we used them on the tables at Mikey's Open House.

They are very cool just the way they are, but I wanted to try dressing them up a bit.  Here's what I came up with:




I used taupe and white colored paper and one of my border punches.  I liked the way they turned out.  Simple but  a little elegant.  I need to try and figure out how to start the border punch at the same point on each side.  I'm going for 10 of these across my mantle.

  2. These are sweet! I used to use baby jars for spices. Just a random memory your candle holders brought back.
