DIY Project :: Burlap & Doily Luminaries

I always love creative ways to incorporate candle light at an event. Candles are great on their own, but adding that extra touch of decor with a special holder is one of my favorite things! I saw this posted on Facebook today and just had to share!

You will need:

Glass jars
Adhesive Spray (like Elmer's Craft Bond)
Twine, buttons, and/or ribbon
Tealight Candles or Battery Operated Tealights

Make sure your jars are clean and dry. Lay the doily flat and spray it with glue. (Make sure to lay out paper, cardboard, or another surface underneath your doily so you don't spray glue directly onto your table!)  With the doily still on the table, place the jar onto the doily and roll it until the entire doily is attached.

Spray the rim with adhesive, then wrap the jar rim with burlap. You can also wrap the rim with pretty ribbon then tie a piece of twine around the rim as well. Tie them both in a bow. Another option is to use the canning jar lid, then wrap that with twine or loose threads from your burlap. Thread two of the ends through a button and tie in a knot.
