Upcyclers June Creativity Challenge Entry!

The Upcyclers Team Monthly CREATIVITY Challenge for June on Etsy is underway and we were to take a glass jar (ie. a mason jar, left over food jar, wine/beer/liquor bottle, baby food jar) and upcycle it into something creative, so I chose to create a glass jar candle holder!

This glass jar candle holder has a natural rustic feel to it with a glass jar, dragonfly wallpaper, brown sparkle ribbon, and a hemp cord with wooden beads. It is 4 3/4" tall by 2 1/2" wide and includes a set of natural small pebbles / rocks and a battery operated tea light making it safe for burning anywhere (can be changed out with a regular tea light)!

Perfect for a housewarming gift, a dorm room, or simply enjoyed by you in your home!

Here are some photos of my creative process from beginning to end:

Hope you enjoyed the little bit of  "behind the scenes" look at one of my creations!
