Use a Lot of Jar Candles? Here Are 2 Idea's for the Glass Lids

4 Materials
Do you go through a lot of jar candles? We certainly do, and I decided to see what I could come up with using some of the glass lids that come with them.
These particular glass lids have a completely flat top, so those are the lids that I am using for these projects.
The first thing I did was remove the plastic seal off of the glass lid. I used needle nose pliers to get underneath it and pull it off.
Then I got some supplies from my craft room. I got out my hot glue gun, hot glue stick, a piece of rope, a votive candle, and my scissors.
I turned the lid over and measured my rope to fit around the lip of the lid, then I cut it, and used a little bit of hot glue at each end of the rope to secure it onto the glass lid.
It certainly dressed up a simple votive. You could use ribbon, buttons, twine, charms, all sorts of things to dress it up to your taste. We live out in the country and have cattle, horses, chickens and so on.. so the rope accent fits in perfect around here. :0)
I have to say though, this one is my favorite. I added a simple ribbon and tied it into a bow.. and it makes a perfect ring dish. Love this one. :0)

    I use them as holders for my painting colors and for my glitter having each color in a separate lid. They are easy to clean out when done and ready for the next project.

    I am going to do this but will decorate the lids with small pine cones and red Christmas ribbon. Then add a red votive candle!! Yay! Great idea!
