10 minute make - jam jar tea light holders

Love tea light holders, love jam! So why not combine the two (empty jam jars obviously)!

What I used -

  • Empty jam jars
  • Soft florist wire (but craft wire would work too)
  • Pliers
  • Wire cutters

Step 1

Cut a length of wire (about 60cm - but will vary depending on jar size). Wrap the wire around the neck of the jam jar.

Step 2

Twist the wire around itself.

Step 3

Shape the wire into a heart (or whatever shape you like). Mine looks a bit, erm, rustic lets say!

Step 4

Twist the ends and trim the wire

Step 5

Add a tea light!
