Mason Jar Candle Holders

A great idea to create some ambience, outdoors or inside, these candle holders are made from recycled glass containers. I save pretty much all glass containers that I use (from salsas, jams and jellies, etc.) for a wide variety of projects, and they accumulate pretty quickly. To get the labels off, a good soak in warm, soapy water and a little elbow grease usually does the trick. Then these jars can then be filled and hung inside or outside, artfully arranged as a centerpiece, or lined up on a windowsill. An inexpensive, environmentally-friendly way to bring some soft lighting into any space!

These particular candleholders are hung using hose clamps secured at the mouth of the jar. Then I used soil and white stones to fill the jars enough that a small citronella tea light candle could be dropped in and easily lit.

Some other fun variations include using sand, just stones, or whatever sort of materials you may find in your backyard. You could even create a mock-terrarium candleholder using soil covered with a bit of moss and a candle. Also try grouping together a variety of sizes and shapes of glasses or create a more modern, streamlined look by lining up identical jars.
