Glass Jars have so many uses, like these Mason Jar Candle Holders. They are easy to make and perfect for any occasion, especially Fourth of July. I shared my DIY Glam Glitter Vases recently and it got me thinking about what else can I do with glitter and glass jars.

Supplies for the Jars: Mason Jars, masking tape, acrylic paint, glitter (I used chunking blue, medium white and fine red), Mod Podge, ribbon, and large lima bean.

    Oh love these. What a great idea. I just got a box of 24 red tapers from my grocery store for .25 each! They’ll be perfect for this! Thanks for the wonderful idea.
    And, thanks for visiting my blog today too.
    Have a great week.
