Pretty up a Plain Ol' Jar Candle | Valentine Craft
I have been creating lots of handmade Valentine Crafts around here! I'm having so much fun doing it!
Here is an idea to dress up a plain jar candle that you can get from a store. I can get these larger jar candles from a local craft store for about $4- $5.
I started mine by placing the end of yarn in a dab of hot glue. I glued a couple more places about 2 inches apart on the first wrap. Then I wrapped the yarn, pulling it tightly, as close to the wrap beneath it. Hold the yarn in your hand and turn the jar. When I got to the top, I glued the end with a dab of hot glue again. I glued a ribbon around the top and bottom of the yarn to cover the spots where the hot glue was. I cut a heart out of felt and glued it on. Then I made a little bow. And voila! Cute Valentine Candle.
