These are the days when I miss my girlfriends – When I wish they were still just up the street & could come over on a whim. Sometimes crafts like this just aren’t the same without a glass of wine & your sissys. We’re trying to plan a little trip up here for them. If it works, this will be on the agenda.
Ps. wine really would be needed for me to be okay with RIPPING pages out of a book. Especially an old book, because they smell the best & feel so nice every time you turn the page. Yes, I do have a passion for books. Best things in the world.
- old bookpages, drawings, maps, woodgrain contact paper, anything paper!
- mod-podge & a brush
- jars (make sure you can fit a candle inside them first) or hurricane glass
Step 1 – Rinse out your jars and remove labels. A good way to get labels off is to first fill the jars with hot water, let them soak a few minutes, and while the hot water is in the jar, just peel the label off. Brilliant.
Step 2 – Pick out your pages and glue them with mod-podge onto the jars.
(Here is a recipe for DIY modge podge)
Step 3 – Let your jars dry on wax paper for a few hours.
Step 4 – Do extra decorating if you like – tie ribbon or string around for a little more color!
Step 5 – Put candles in and you’re done. Put them around your house, or set them aside in a box for special occasions.
