It has been awhile since my last post but I have been very busy
getting ready for an upcoming craft show.
Today I am going to share with you how to make these easy
and cost next to nothing jar candle using dyed coffee filters.
1 Glass Jar
4-6 Coffee Filters
1 Votive Cup (one that fits in the top of the jar)
1 Piece of Ribbon
Mod Podge or All Purpose Glue
Black and Orange Acrylic Paint
The first step is to "dye" your coffee filters in tea or I used coffee.
To dye them you simply soak them for a few minutes.
Then lay them out on a sheet of newspaper or cardboard.
Then splatter them with black and orange paint.
Let them dry completely.
Next you will tear the coffee filters in workable size pieces
and start by decoupaging the bottom of the jar first.
Then work your way down the sides.
Then you will need to let this dry... I left mine dry overnight.
Then in the morning I flipped the jars over and did the top of the jars around the rims.
Then again let dry.
Then tie the piece of ribbon around,
add the votive cup and candle... and you are done!
Most of the materials for this project I already had
except for the candles so it cost next to nothing to make these.
You could also change the colors to fit any theme...
I am already planning on some for Christmas!
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoyed this project!
