The Dancing Shadows: From Empty Jam Jar to Candleholder

Those of us who love jams, definitely have these empty glass jars at home. We hardly dispose them off and often make them a part of our kitchen storage space.

Well, here is a common, yet interesting way of reusing them – as Candle-holders. We all love these little “red flowers” that brighten our houses, don’t we?

The good part is that you can decorate these jars with whatever you have at home – glitter, laces, paint, thread, paper cut outs. Literally anything. In fact, the difficult part is to choose what to use and what not to.


I had some black paint and a rope that were desperately waiting to get used in my projects. And their much awaited day was today. Lucky thingies!

Here is the final product! Simple, raw and effective.
