Candle Jars For Summer...

We have been reading and crafting up a storm this Summer! It has been H-O-T, and the heat and humidity seems to be bothering little M's heart a bit, so when it gets very hot we have been staying inside.

In one of our storybooks, some kids decorate a candle jar, and little M asked what that was...I had no real idea, but this is what we came up with...


We used little tissue squares and mod podge to decorate some glass candle jars I had already...


Baby J loved this, and took it very seriously...


He also enjoyed making a mess. He enjoys that a lot.


We let them dry...



And the very minute they were dry, the kids were anxious to get candles in them...


I think they turned out pretty cute, and my kiddos are pretty proud that this is our table decoration.

What a cute crafting idea! We need to do some more crafts around here- I might have to borrow this idea!! :)

I remember doing this with my big girls when they were M and J age. They used the same idea to make centerpieces for our sweetheart banquet in February! Of course theirs were slightly more sophisticated than the ones they made in kindergarten:)
