Happy New Year

A Very Happy New Year to one and all
We had the most lovely surprise last night. 
All my children are adults 29, 26 and 20 and were all out and about doing their own thing partying
at five to twelve our door was chapped and here they all were...
Home to bring in the bells with their mum and dad....well that was me blubbing like a baby
What a wonderful start to the New Year.

As the weather as been dreadful lately 
I have been keeping candles at the ready I love candles and holders anyway and
I have wanted to make one of these for ages.

A Jar Candle Holder

I used an old coffee jar that I had and attached a doily
I wrapped brown twine around the jar 3 times and fastened off

I cut out a Diesire Heart Doily in red felt
and adhere to the jar using Collall 3D Gel Glue

Basic Gray Button with brown twine to fine off.
A Yankee votive inside and we are ready for anything.....

Hope you like my first project of 2014.....

I Hope 2014 is an amazing year for you all

Thanks for stopping by....much appreciated!
