DIY a Spring Candle

I have joined with a bunch of crafty ladies for the month of March for a Dollar Store Craft Challenge. All the items I used can be found at the dollar store. This was a fun challenge and I actually made two different crafts, the other will be posted later and linked back here since they go together for a cute bathroom update. At the bottom of this tutorial, you will find links to all the projects. 



All items were purchased at the Dollar Tree except the last two, which I already had. But of course, they can be purchased at the Dollar Tree as well.


Remove the sticker from the glass jar.

Separate the backing from the napkin.

napkin strip
Cut a strip of the napkin to the width of the glass jar.

mod podge
Mod Podge around the base of the glass jar.

Place the napkin around the jar and then paint another layer of Mod Podge.
Can you believe I placed the napkin pattern upside down? - Oh well.

Using the same technique I placed a napkin butterfly on the top of the jar and wrapped a ribbon around the jar, and added a bow.

Those little jars candles are great! It'd be fun to decoupage one for every season or holiday. I'm pretty sure they make napkins for all of them plus more.


Cute candle!


What a great gift idea especially with Mother's Day coming up!


What a clever idea! I love the finished glass. It's so spring.


I can't wait to get some pretty paper napkins and give this a try!


The napkin you used to decoupage on the candle jar. The colors are so pretty for Spring. Pinnin


What a pretty update! I love the look of decoupage, but never thought to put it on a jar candle! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures


Such a fun and pretty idea to add a nice Spring touch. I like that you used it by the sink. Those napkins are so pretty. I love Mod Podge projects!


The pink bow really adds a final touch to your project! I don't use candles much since I switched over to diffusing oils, but this is a great idea to make candles fancy for special events!


What a fun way to dress up a plain candle. I love the butterfly on the top. Pinning.
