Who would think that you could use something so simple and easy from the house to make a beautiful decoration. I bet a little food coloring and you could make these any color you want, right? The light would shine through if you use a candle, and the color would still be transparent enough to sparkle and shine through the room or across the table.

These are beautiful! I can see the colored ones with a thin strip of burlap ribbon around the middle and a bow of white with a twig of evergreen. I can also see the white ones nestled in a ring of holly and red berries. Be sure to set them on a mirror...it always doubles the candle light!

I always was curious as to how people got the frosted look on glasses. I thought they rolled them in glitter. Now I know the secret and it's a very easy, inexpensive way to make them. I think they make for a very romantic setting. A late night dessert with a special some one with these adding a glow to the room is just what Santa can bring me.

wonderful. Even had kids draw on them first.

This is a great project for a cool Saturday with the grandkids and it is one that I will be trying. I love to hunt through Thrift stores for odd jars and glasses and this would be a great way to reuse my glass finds and even make gifts for the grandkids for their aunts and moms.

I really like the epsom salt luminaries. So easy and great for gifts. Vivian

Glad you like them!

Good idea, but as pamarkley said, it looks cheesy with these canning jars. There are a lot of other containers you can use,such as votive holders, hurricane lamps, etc.

Put a nice ribbon around it, or tiny ferns.

No so cute with the threads on the top of the jar. Looks so cheesy. Use the glass previous candles came in. Or check at the dollar store for unthreaded glass containers. Even little votive holders will work and some even come in colors!

Put a nice ribbon on them, or a wreath looking trim.
