diy tealight jars

here's a super simple diy project perfect for the darker evenings! i was collecting some jars for a project that has since been abandoned, but thought that this would be a great way to recycle them and add to the flat. they are also great because pixel can't try and attack the flame! 

so if you'd like to make your own diy tealight jars, here's how i did it :)

  4. Love it! I thought it was doilies on them! My problem is that Inara is so big/clumsy/doesn't care where she walks she'd knock them on the floor with paw/bush tail in seconds :-( xxx

  5. This is really cool and I like that it's inexpensive, but still a really sophisticated way to decorate.
