January 10, 2013


I thought it would be fun to do a month of Valentine's Day
projects this year so over the next few weeks I will be
posting fun, simple and very inexpensive ideas for
Valentine's Day.....
My first project are these cute candle jars......
very inexpensive and requires only 4 supplies......
1. an old jar from the thrift store
2.  some vintage music paper
3.  twine
4.  glue
Simply cut a piece of vintage paper to wrap around your jar and cut two heart shapes (matching up one in the front and one in the back).....glue this sheet to your jar (any type of glue will do).  Wrap the top of your jar with some twine or ribbon and make some rolled paper roses (lots of tutorials all over blog land for these) to glue on for embellishment.
I added a bit of white sand to the bottom of my jar for a tea light to sit on.
So simple and inexpensive!
We're all a little weird. And life is a little weird. 
And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours,
we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness - and call it love - true love. ~Robert Fulghum
(I thought this quote was really cute....not sure if my husband will agree!)
