Candles are great for creating a homely atmosphere, especially in the colder evenings so why not add a personal touch to your home and create your own candle holder with a glass jar. You will want to use a material that can withstand heat when doing this craft but other than that anything goes. This is an opportunity to unleash your creative side and create something lovely for your loved ones. Simply take a cleaned out jar or container and add your own decorations to suit the style of your house, things like shells, stones, and crystals would be great as when the candle is lit the shapes are going to make the whole thing stand out. If you are using a jam jar you could decorate with nail polish or permanent markers that are going to give a stained glass window effect.
Ornaments / Picture Frames
In these uncertain times there is nothing more important than family, so why not display your affection for your loved ones by adding a personal touch to your home photos and frames. The beauty of this craft project is the fact that you are likely to have photo frames in your house that are in need of some extra details. Using any decorative bits you have in your house already simply superglue the pieces around the picture, don’t be afraid of getting messy with this as the rustic designs are much nicer in my opinion. Ensure that everything is glued down properly and you could even add some color with paints if you wanted to add something extra. Once you have finished you will be left with a beautifully creative piece displaying your favorite memories
