Jam Jar Tea-light holders

I love candles and the fact that the boys are getting older and more responsible means that we use them more often, especially during the winter months,

I had seen these lanterns at both Planet Penny and Tales from a Happy Home and have been wanting to make some for our house too, but always find other uses for the jars.

However, I finally managed to save two jars to make my own tonight.

You will need:

  • Jars (one was a pickle jar and the other a jam jar)
  • Lace, this was from my mum's stash, so it is nice to use it
  • Sheet music (I found a free printable online and have it and others saved on my Pinterest account)
  • Double sided tape
  • Ribbon


  1. As it is nearly Christmas I decided to use a festive theme and printed out silent night sheet music and cut it to size.  
  2. I then added a strip of double sided tape to each end and attached it to the jar.
  3. I then tied a ribbon round the top of the jar.
  4. I used double sided tape at the ends of the lace too.

I have lots of season ideas to make more tea-light holders.  Hmm I have better start eating more jam or pickles!


  1. These jars are really pretty! I have a whole massive stash of jars waiting to be upcycled!

  2. ӏt's going to be ending of mine day, however before ending I am reading this impressive piece of writing to improve my experience.
