Check it Out! I am all about using what I have, especially when it comes to crafts. I love making something out of nothing and everytime I walk by it, I get that proud feeling of accomplishment again.
Last month I posted a TBCCrafters project that left me with some left over marble stones. You can see that craft, a marbled wooden letter when you GO HERE. I also have a bunch of jars, so I decided the two together would make a great candle holder.
There are only 3 things needed for this craft:
*Glass jar or vase
*Silicone (you could also use hot glue)
So to get started I just picked a random spot and applied silicone to the back of my stones and attached them randomly on one side. Because it does take a little time for the silicone to dry, I recommend propping your jar on its side so that the jar doesn't roll and you can focus on that section.
Now you can work your way around the jar. I made a band using the larger stones around the top, which I really like. It's kinda a puzzle with no set pattern so you just have to work it all out. I did used some of my broken pieces from the other craft to fill in the larger holes.
Once your done, pop in a candle and you are ready for some really pretty ambiance. The colors and the glow is absolutely beautiful in my bathroom along with all the beachy themed stuff.
I really am having fun working with these marble stones and have some more crafts coming up using them, and using more jars as well, so stay tuned!!
