I LOVE mason jars; I use them for everything from serving drinks to storing ingredients. The problem is, my collection has reached hipster-hoarder status. This year I really want to do a rustic Thanksgiving set-up, so I thought I’d thin out the collection of jars in my cabinets by repurposing them into candles for the table. I used a couple of jars I received at a recent Veev event. I plan on serving a lot of their VitaFrute cocktails for the holidays, so I figured it would be the perfect tie-in.
The process was so easy that I’m thinking about making a dozen more for Christmas gifts! Here’s how you do it-
- 1 lb bag of wax flakes or block of wax.
- wax colorant; beads, bars or in liquid form
- candle pouring pot
- wicks and wick adhesive
- wick holder sticks (or pens!)
- a wooden spoon
- scent oil of your choice (optional)
- pint sized mason jar
