Hello Doily Candel Jar

 Hello Friends
  Here another candle jar that I did this past weekend. This one turn out so cool. You can see the other one from 2 weeks ago bu CLICKING HERE. These would make a lovely gift for anyone on you list. This one was so much easier to make then the first one. I don't know if it's cause I knew what I was doing or if it's cause the jar was round and the other was hexagon. Well now I will look for round jar and make lots more for gift..... At the bottom I copie the detail from last time Enjoy and have a great day!

Here the detail how I did it:
  First I use a piece of white tissue paper (the one for gift bag stuffer) I stamp the Delicate Doilies all over with white craft inf then emboss it with white powder (be careful not to leave your heat gun to long to burn the paper, the tissue is very light), then I spong a little here and there with Soft Sued, crumble your tissue and set a side.
Step #2 Wash your glass jar very good then cover all the surface with Mod Podge.
#3 Very quickly before the Mod Podge dry, apply your stamp/emboss tissue paper all over it don't fuss about the wrinkle. I put my jar upside dowm on a bottle so I can cover under to.
#4 Apply a good layer of mod podge all over and let dry very good.
#5 After it's all dry trim the top of the paper equal with the rim of the jar.
#6 Then you embellish with whatever you would like I use the Quilted Ribbon, Button and some Linen Threat.
VOILA you have super nice candle jar that will not catch on fire!

  1. What a wonderful idea! Your candle is just beautiful - thank you for sharing!

  2. I did this very same design as a presenter at Ronda Wade's Creative Convention in October, but brayed the tissue paper with Baja Breeze Classic Ink (my favorite color). I love your color also (both colors give you the vintage look). You can see the difference here:
    I have to thank Sharon Field for providing the instructions.
