This yarn wrapped candle jar was inspired by my friend Katie. I wish she had a blog or flickr account that I could point you towards because her design sense is just so lovely and charming. She is one of those people who is gifted with an eye for color, shape, and balance. She is a talented weaver, and a few years ago she experimented with decoupaging weft threads around a ball jar. Such a clever idea.
Now that it is screened porch season again, I was inspired to use this candle holder for our table. I made it with regular wool yarn and Mod Podge, and there is a candle nestled in the bottom of the jar.
The yarn creates twinkling shadows when the candle is lit.
