Quick and Easy Jar Candle

Sometimes it’s just too easy.

I picked this jar up for $0.50 at an estate sale. It even had its lid still (that’s what the little birdie is perched on).

I carefully filled the  jar with some pea gravel and then tucked in a candle I found in our basement.

Quick. Easy. Simple. And frugal.

Love, love, love it when that happens.

I plan to take this outside and use it on our patio in the evening. You could also make several of them using smaller glass jars and line the walkway to your front door for one night. How pretty would that be?

Tip: use a piece of uncooked spaghetti to light the candle. I had heard that tip before but never tried it. Worked like a charm and no burned fingers!
