Candles are romantic. Burlap is rustic. Here I’ve combined all of them to make these pretty luminaries that would be great for a romantic wedding reception accent. Play around with different ribbons, buttons, twine and burlap while experimenting with various doily designs as well.
Make sure your jars are clean and dry. Spray the jar with adhesive spray.Place the doily onto the jar and position it, making sure it’s not bunched up anywhere. Press in place.Spray the rim with adhesive, then wrap the jar rim with burlap.
You can also wrap the rim with pretty ribbon then tie a piece of twine around the rim as well. Tie them both in a bow.
Another option is to use the canning jar lid, then wrap that with twine or loose threads from your burlap. Thread two of the ends through a button and tie in a knot.
They look lovely on their own or with a lit tea light glowing inside.
Every season holds its own inspiration. Spring has soft pastels and sweet tiny blooms on branches. Summer has wildflowers and vibrant jewel tones. Autumn is natural, crisp, and surrounded by amber light. But winter – winter is for sparkly gold, ivory, and decadent desserts. The color board for this inspiration shoot combined the cool wintry tones of gray & white with the warmth of firelight gold.
