Little lights

I love shiny, sparkly things, maybe I should have been a Magpie?  I also love recycling things so I saved these little jars that came filled with yummy pudding and made them into tea light holders.

First I painted them with glass paint, using several shades of each colour and swirling them together to get a nice effect.  I baked them in  the oven to set the glass paint then enjoyed choosing the shiny glass beads in lovely jewell colours to match the glass paint. I threaded them onto jewellery wire and clamped them into place with those little clamp beads (I’m sure they have a name but I can’t remember it!) and my jewellery pliers.

I didn’t take a photo of them in daylight but I gave them to a friend and took pictures when she had lit them.

Ooh, Shiny!

Namaste x
