DIY Starfish Candle Jar

Thursday, February 23, 2012

We love this simple, easy, inexpensive do-it-yourself project.

What you'll need:
  • clear mason jar
  • sand
  • votive candle
  • twine
  • finger starfish

1. Grab your clear mason, jelly or glass jar.

2. Fill it half-way, with sand.  If you don't live near the beach, you may find play sand at your local home-improvement store.

3. Wrap twine around the top of the jar.  You can do this as far down or as thick as you like.

4. Attach a finger starfish to the twine. Just tie it on or use hot glue.

5. Insert a votive candle inside.  For outdoor use, us a citronella candle to keep the bugs at bay.

6. Place on your deck when lounging or outdoor dining; tabletop or line a walking path for a party.

7. Enjoy this beach cottage style candle jar.  And be sure to brag to everyone you made it!

You could also loop some wire around to create a hanger.  Several of these hanging from a tree or your patio umbrella would be beautiful.
