DIY Stenciled Fall Jar Candle Holder

Do you enjoy a craft challenge?
If you do I hope that you will stay awhile and also visit these six other bloggers,
listed at the end of this post to see how they took this Fall Jar challenge and created their own Fall decorative jars.
I would like to thank the Jar Store for generously providing us with these
64 oz. Anchor Heritage Hill Glass Jars.

I positively love the versatility of jars, and the endless possibilities that go along with customizing them.Such a perfect time of the year to customize and display them too.

Today I am super happy to share with you how I took this clear glass jar and stenciled it, added twine, metal ribbon and then tossed in a few pine cones along with a mercury votive candle to create this stenciled Fall jar candle holder. 
Then I placed it on a clear cake plate, tucked it into a natural wicker basket, added a few faux pumpkins, autumn leaves and wooden letters too. Sometimes just a little goes along way!

If you have a few hours to spare over the weekend you too can create this Fall Jar Candle holder.

Step 1. Working with Metal Ribbon is surprisingly easy and quite simple to fit to the rim of any jar.
Metal ribbon can be cut or bent to any length you like.
I measured first and then bent the metal ribbon for this project,and then tied the two pieces with twine to hold them together on the backside of the jar.

Step 3. After securing metal ribbon, add twine or jute around the metal ribbon and tie it off.

Step 4. When stenciling a jar begin first by taping desired stencil to jar and then apply one to two coats of acrylic paint.
Make certain to allow paint to dry in between applications.

Step 5. Paint knob on lid and wrap in twine.

Tape off knob with painters tape and paint knob. I used two coats of acrylic paint. After paint dries wrap with twine.

Step 6. Add small pine-cones to decorative jar, filling it about 1/2 full.

Step 7. Nestle Mercury glass votive candle holder into the pine-cones and add a votive candle.
(I use and recommend a flameless or LED votive candle for safety which can purchased at Walmart or most craft stores.)
