doily/jar luminary



a friend showed me a link to a jar luminary similar to this and I just knew I had to make this. I used Helmar's acid free glue to adhere the doily to the jar and to my surprise it did not make the doily stiff! I love that it is stills oft on the jar, though trust me it is not coming off. I wanted to make some of these for my craft fair table, so that means I wanted it to have a country/prim feel. so i added some homespun fabric (also adhered with Helmar's acid free glue) and teh I added some prima flowers and buttons with Helmar's 450 quick dry glue..I love this stuff! I will never buy glue dots again. in my pics I have a battery operated tea light ibn teh jar, but a regular tea light candle works well too. I love the pretty designs these luminaries cast on the walls in a darkened room.
