To add a soft glow to my mantel, I used the Autumn Painted Mason Jars that I made for tea light holders. This is super simple, check it out:
What You'll Need:Rustic Twine
Tealights (I used the autumn scented ones from Hobby Lobby)
How to get the look:Wrap the top of the jars haphazardly about 9 times, tying a short, discrete knot in the back. Trim the extra off of the knot.
Using whatever tea light you choose, place it in the bottom of the jar. I only place one tea light per jar. Avoid using hot glues or adhesives to the bottom of the tea light as the tea light tin can get hot and melt the adhesive or cause fumes.
That's it! Enjoy!
