DIY Moth Candle Jars


I was struck with inspiration after I spotted these butterfly/moth semi-transparent stickers that my Mum had recently purchased from Amazon. I thought they would be the ideal decoration for a candle holder. I rooted around for some old jars, cleaned them up a bit and stuck them around the sides. These stickers are designed to peel off again easily, leaving no sticky mess behind. So if you make a mistake, just peel off and re-stick!
Popping a tea light inside the jar, and a ribbon around the edge to add something extra, the butterflies glow and send out beautiful shadows. Like a moth to a flame!



If you are attaching ribbon around your jar, be careful it's not too long and there is no risk of it catching fire. The glass jars also get very hot after a while so keep this in mind. A simple idea that makes a lovely present. It also only takes around 10 minutes to make!
