Practically Perfect…

This is my favorite of my crafts I’ve recently created! So I’m really excited to share it with you ~

I stopped by my local dollar store & picked up a bunch of candles in glass jars.

The other supplies were found in my stash of craft goodies that I have shared with you before! (hymnal, glitter, ribbon & glue)  I did however add something new to the mix!  A gorgeous tag that I ordered from The Porcelain Rose Etsy Store
I first glued a plain white sheet of paper around the glass of the jar.  While it was drying, I glued The Porcelain Rose tag to the hymnal paper and glittered the edges.

Once everything was dry I glued the hymnal paper onto the white paper already on the jar and put rubber bands around the paper to keep everything in place while it dried.


Adorned the top with ribbons and an  accessory & a new lovely Holiday Gift was ready to give!  I will be definitely making a lot more of these, and could do so for so many holidays…It’s practically perfect in every way!

Oh sooo beautiful, I ordered tags from the Porcelain Rose too, but can't bring myself to use them yet as I am still enjoying looking at them myself. A bit selfish I know,but why not,I will give them eventually. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. xx jeanetteann
