We had used up a couple of salsa jars that screamed votive holders to me! So far I have played with one.
This gold clay is odd to work with since it streaks darker tones. However I thought it would be perfect for decorating the jar.
Rolling out strips is very relaxing.
After baking the clay I went through my stash and decided to cut several pieces of this ribbon yarn to hide the top where the lids screws on. It complements the color of the clay perfectly.
I was going for something that would give off a lot of light and also create cool patterns on the wall and ceiling. It really only creates neat lighting on the table but I love how much light it gives off with a candle flickering!
A little tip I learned for removing the labels was a 50/50 combo of vegetable oil and baking soda stirred into a paste. The labels peeled off easily but the residue left behind would not scrub off! I also tried rubbing alcohol. The paste was the one thing that worked. I let it sit on the jars for about 5 minutes and the residue scrubbed right off!
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful week ahead. ~Val
