Since I am not a supermom (not to say that moms that make their own baby food are) I bought baby food on jars.
Seeing that the size of the smaller jars would be perfect for tea lights I saved a whole lot of them.
Unfortunately my husband was not found of the idea of a chandelier made of baby food jars.
I liked the idea of painting them, but first I just wanted to try out another idea that I came up with myself.
Yarn wrapped votives.
All you need is
- some yarn (I used leftovers)
- school glue
- little bit of paint
- baby food jars
You start by wrapping the yarn around the opening leaving some glass showing at the top. This will secure the yarn.
Wrap the yarn carefully in a single layer all the way down almost to the bottom where you secure it using the glue.
Draw a heart or other symbol on top of the yarn with glue and press down more yarn till you can clearly see the shape made out of yarn.
Dab a little bit of paint on top of the raised symbol just to make it stand out a little bit more. Voila, you are done.
