Tea Light in a Mason Jar

I am always looking for new ideas on how to display candles. I happened to think this was really cute.  Denise at I love this and that has all of the directions for this Candle in a Bottle.  The thing I like about this is that you don’t really need much.

Aren’t these just the cutest things? So simple, so elegant, so inexpensive. Gardenmama’s Tutorial

You could easily fill these with water and float a tealight, or simply use a votive candle for an equally appealing look.

I would love to see this surrounded by some floating tea lights perhaps with some beads and/or some of those flowers in the jar.

This is yet another very simple, tasteful and inexpensive display using a mason jar. It seems to me this would be quite perfect for Christmas, however, change the flower or the berry or even the fruit used and you have a perfect centerpiece for any occasion.

Multiple Mason Jar Centerpiece

I hope this lovely Easter Sunday afternoon finds everyone well and full of delicious eats. (I know I am) I realize I  have been focusing on a lot of recipes so I thought I would get back to some more decorative ideas.

I was led to this beautiful arrangement of mason jars @ Oh Lovely Day while browsing Pinterest.

I think this one is kind of self explanatory just by looking at the picture. I did however think that it could be jazzed up a bit by adding some fruit slices or colored beads to the bottom of the jars. I would also put a lovely tealight candle in the middle jar and perhaps a couple of the outer jars.
