One of my favorite gifts this Christmas was made by two of my granddaughters (Julia - 15 and Arielle - 7) with a bit of help from their mom. I guess you would call this a luminary, or maybe a candle jar. Whatever you call it, it is pretty!
Photo at top is not the best picture as it was taken with a flash. However, I do love the reflected tree lights in the photo. I took another with my Kindle so will try adding that in also to give you a closer look. Ah yes, this looks better.
The girls also made these for their music teachers (Julia) and Sunday School teacher (Arielle). It looks as if they decoupaged sheet music, cut to size, and with a snowflake shape cut out of it, to a pint mason jar with (probably) Mod Podge. I haven't asked for the crafting particulars, but they did say that their mom cut the snowflake shapes out for them. The sheet music is a Christmas carol, as you see: mine is O Come All Ye Faithful. I think this was probably a sheet music printable, but am not sure. It's lovely, anyway. Then a simple jute tie around the top and some sweet red berry pips complete the project. I love it!
Below is a little video of the jar with a flickering tea light inside. It looks lovely with a real tea light candle (that's what it came with), but the one I used for the video was a battery operated tea light.Isn't this a sweet project?
