Hi, everyone!

This is what I did this weekend. Two candleholders that you can hang in the window, and one candleholder to place on you're table. All the three candleholders are old glassjars I had at home. I "polished" the glassjars with some special tools I had at home. I used stealwire to hang them up in the window. This is also my very first "polished" glassjars I've ever made. I just wanted to try it, and well, I'm very happy how it turned out and it was really fun too! Cheesy
Here they are:

Without a candle in it


And lighted up


And here are the other ones

These are my tools, the pink one I used when I polished all the sides on the first candleholder, and the other with the round "head" I used when I polished the flowers.


And this is my "Toolmate"


So what do you think?
Thanks for looking! Wink

Wow, I really like the table.

The combination of the twine and the frosting gives it a style that is just plain nice.


Good Work!

Thanks for showing.  I noticed you put candles in the jars.  I was thinking of doing something similar (wrapping twine around the mouth), but actually doing container candles.  Do you think that it would be safe to have the twine so near the flame?  Thanks.

Thanks I'm glad you liked it! Wink Well, I think it depends on how big the jars are, because if they are very wide and round jar I don't think it's a problem. But if they are quit small it can maybe catch fire, I'm not sure, that depends on the size. I've done some similar candleholders like this but with real candles in it, you can see them here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=236829.msg2596736#msg2596736 and http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=236828.msg2596732#msg2596732

But it's a little bit diffrent from your idea... Undecided but my answer is like I said, the size, how wide are the jars, and what type of twine are you going to use?

I hadn't decided on the twine type.  Is there one you recommend?

The sizes would vary--I have containers anywhere from 1.5" to 2.5" in diameter.

Thanks!
