make these : rustic christmas candles

Rustic Christmas Candle DIYI truly believe in making Christmas gifts. In addition to the tutorials that were featured on the blog last year (here and here), I was inspired to create one that could either work on its own as a holiday craft, or as a thoughtful present for those whose homes embody a rustic feel. 

Rustic Christmas Candle DIY - 1What you will need:

Several jam jars
Scented candles
Aged book
Pine leaves
Twine
Moss
Scissors
Crazy glue

Rustic Christmas Candle DIY - 2Steps:

1. Measure the width and circumference of a single jam jar. Take those measurements and trace them onto the number of book pages that equal the number of jars. Cut and remove.

2. Now trace shapes onto the sheets of paper that will cover the jars. Again, cut and remove those shapes.

3. Take a jam jar and wrap it in one of those sheets of paper. Holding the paper with one hand, wrap twine around it once over so that the paper will stay in place. Tie it in a knot, and remove the excess twine.

Rustic Christmas Candle DIY - 34. Place one or more pine leaves on the exterior of the jar. Use the twine to make it stay in place, wrapping around the jar several times.

Rustic Christmas Candle DIY - 45. Once the exterior is complete, place a dab of crazy glue onto the bottom of the candle. Now set the candle in the centre of the jar.

Rustic Christmas Candle DIY - 66. Fill the jar with moss. Then wait until it becomes dark, light the candle, and watch the shapes dance on the wall or surface. It’s quite beautiful!
