    Default Candle Jar (this one is different)

    Use an old mason jar or any jar you have, mason jars work the best. Find a glass votive holder (or juice cup or any fire safe item) to fit in the top of your jar and not fall in. Fill the jar with potpourie, buttons, dried fruit, an old rag doll, whatever you like. Place the votive holder on top, use clear silicone around the lip if you need to to hold it in place. If your lucky you will have found a votive holder that will allow you to place the mason jar band on over the votive holder. (I found the votive holders I get at walmart work well and fit inside for this) decorate the threads or neck of the jar with a strip of fabric or little trinkets to match the contents of the jar. Add a votive candle to the holder. You can print a cardby hand or on your computer with a friendship poem, a poem about "Light" or simply put the instuctions for use on it...
    Hope you have fun with one....
