Tomorrow is Yule and the official kick off to my family's holiday festivities. In the Northern hemisphere this date marks the first day of winter, and the return of the sun. Our days begin to lengthen, light takes over darkness, and we celebrate with food, drink, fire, laughter and light.
I spied some pretty luminaries on pinterest and thought they'd be a perfect addition to our celebrations. Remember that winter womderland jar I posted this week? This is its kin. I've upcycled this one into a lantern. It can be filled with a candle or (for those especially safety conscience) a string of holiday lights.
**NOTE: If using a candle, your lid must remain OFF while the candle is lit**
I podged some light tissue paper on the outside of my jar to give it a softer 'glow'. I applied some Tresors de Luxe lace with a triangular pattern, a little reminiscent of Christmas Trees around the base.around the top. I've used a
Gussy up the lid and you have a beautiful holiday luminary, perfect for any celebration :)

That's a very pretty jar. And by adding pink tissue and lace, it could become a valentine votive jar. Orange with black, Halloween. SherryReplyDelete
