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.

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
