Shabby Sunday #8

Happy Sunday everyone and welcome to Shabby Sunday week #8

This week I have altered 2 x pasta sauce jars (that were due to be recycled this weekend) to make a lovely wee shabby chic candle holders, they are now out of the recycling chain and will be used around the house and garden deck area.

I plan to take a picture of them this evening with the candles lit, so that you can see what they are like in the dark πŸ™‚

The jars were cleaned thoroughly in the dishwasher before being used πŸ™‚

In the tealight holder below, I used the tattered florals die by tim holtz and cut out several layers of calico and tuille, stitched them all together and layered with shop a bought burlap flower.

It is really easy to make these jars, I used lace and fabric, but you could use patterned paper, felt, paint, the possibilities are endless, plus you do not need to use real tealights (flame variety) you can buy little tealights with an artificial flame that are battery operated, which will make them super safe πŸ™‚
