Candlestick Jars.


Joe's cute cousin Jane has a blog which you really should check out HERE. Last year, she posted a tutorial on how to make darling candy jars attached to candlesticks. I decided to try my hand at it and make some up for my mother-in-law for Christmas. They were super fun to make and I'm in the process of making some now to match my kitchen. The candy jars I made as a present are above {sorry about the poor picture taken from my phone} and here are Jane's cute candy jars:



All dolled up for Halloween. She gives you a step by step tutorial on what you need and how to make them HERE. I couldn't find the plain wooden candlesticks ANYWHERE....so I purchased a box of 3 candlesticks from Wal-mart and then spray painted them white to match Marilyn's kitchen. I also couldn't find the finials she was talking about for the tops of the lids so I purchased door knobs from Target on clearance and spray painted them white as well. I used Gorilla glue to attach the jars to the candlesticks once everything was nice and ready. Happy Crafting!
