Make Mine Spring!

Hey guys!  I have a fun, thrifty spring idea for you!  I found this fabulous papery ribbon at Hobby Lobby recently.  50% off of course.  And knew I had to come up with something "springy" to do with it.  Since I have been in purge mode (spring cleaning anyone?), I am finding all sorts of things I can repurpose.  Like extra mason and jam jars.  Jars + ribbon + mod podge = fun springy votives!  Now I just need some sand and some tealights, and my porch will be sprinkled with a touch 'o spring.

{I twisted some wire around the lip of one of the jars and made a handle}

Cute, huh?

Wow! This is such a great idea! We always have extra jars from things like sauces or pickles or jams... You could have a set of tealights/repurposed jars for every season & holiday. Thank you so much for sharing! I LOVE this idea!

These remind me of such happy times in my life. I love them for spring! Although here in Atlanta it's almost summer, or at least it feels like it. Blah!
