Light Up Your Life

Put your glitzy jewelry to good use. Adorn the outside of a small to medium size jar with strings of beads for a festive centerpiece or accessory in any room.

1. Place baubles, bangles and beads in a small to medium clear jar. Fill to half way.

2. Place a votive in the jar and light! Make sure they flame does not reach any jewelry. As always, never leave candles unattended.
