Jam Jar Tea-light holders

I love candles and the fact that the boys are getting older and more responsible means that we use them more often, especially during the winter months,

I had seen these lanterns at both Planet Penny and Tales from a Happy Home and have been wanting to make some for our house too, but always find other uses for the jars.

However, I finally managed to save two jars to make my own tonight.

You will need:

  • Jars (one was a pickle jar and the other a jam jar)
  • Lace, this was from my mum's stash, so it is nice to use it
  • Sheet music (I found a free printable online and have it and others saved on my Pinterest account)
  • Double sided tape
  • Ribbon


  1. As it is nearly Christmas I decided to use a festive theme and printed out silent night sheet music and cut it to size.  
  2. I then added a strip of double sided tape to each end and attached it to the jar.
  3. I then tied a ribbon round the top of the jar.
  4. I used double sided tape at the ends of the lace too.

I have lots of season ideas to make more tea-light holders.  Hmm I have better start eating more jam or pickles!


  1. These jars are really pretty! I have a whole massive stash of jars waiting to be upcycled!

  2. ӏt's going to be ending of mine day, however before ending I am reading this impressive piece of writing to improve my experience.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
