Recycling empty jars
I used some empty jars to create this simple yet beautiful candle holder.
First I collected sticks outside.
Then I put a rubber band around the jar and placed the sticks around it, held in place by the rubber band.
Once all the sticks were just the way i wanted them I cut them all roughly the same size.
I then took some black sewing thread and wrapped it really tight around the sticks, overlaying it to add a bit of texture.
Then I tied a pretty ribbon around the sticks really tight and removed the rubber band
Finally I placed a candle inside, lit it and watched as the flames peaked through the imperfect layering of sticks.
