Ever have one of those serendipitous moments where something out of place becomes an inspiration?
I was in one of my local craft stores recently and found this little votive holder sitting on a shelf where it wasn’t supposed to be. It is one of the ones that just holds a little votive, and it has a flared top.
Right around the corner from it was an end cap full of mason jars.
And I wondered, would the little votive fit one of those jars?
Well, look at that. Lots of space below to fill and customize for any holiday or tablescape.
I filled it with gold glittery apples.
Then with red glittery icicle garland.
How about a little of each?
Then I went back to the gold apples and added a bow.
The best thing is there is no glue involved. The votive just lifts out and the bottom filler can be changed over and over!! How neat is that?!! Update – after this idea was published, I figured out that the metal ring would screw on over the candle holder. So now, I do that too.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’ll stay a bit and look around. My blog is about a lot of things, crafting and sewing, quilting and cooking, reading and decorating. If you like this Holiday Mason Jar, see the Beaded Holiday Jar for another idea.
