This is a very basic version of a Wool wrapped Candle Holder; should you be creative there are so many different ways of spicing up your jar.

  • ·       When the paint is still wet – you can roll the jar into a bowl of glitter or sand to add a different texture and dimension to your jar and is great for getting the kids involved as a weekend project.

  • ·      Rather than use only one colour – you can use a few colours to paint the jar, white, silver and gold complement each other and are very ‘in’ colours.

  • ·         You could leave the wool on the jar to create an additional 3 dimensional element.
