I adore this idea and (while I was supposed to be doing actual “work” last night) finally had the chance to give it a try. A few things I changed: I used votive candles instead of mason jars, because the smaller size fit what I’m working on for my current Valentine’s tablescape (for our Small Bites/Dirty Martinis Valentine’s party). Also, avoid burning candles in the votives when the project is still wet: polyurethane has an intense, chemical smell that is quite unappealing!
Inspiration for my Valentine’s Tablescape:
Glass vases wrapped with festival ribbons (Tablescape in progress):
Glitter votives with heart cut outs (read directions better than I did):
Have I mentioned that Valentine’s is my favorite holiday of the year?
