Recycled Jars

I make an easy and yummy strawberry jam in the early summer so I hang on to jars like these….

I end up with lots of jars in this size….
  They are perfect to reuse for freezer jam because the lids are a plain white or silver and the size is just right.
  We also use them for drinking glasses.  🙂
After seeing a few mason jar posts on “blogland” I decided to transform them into something decorative…

Like this-

All you need:
 jars, black glass paint, twine (burlap if you like) and tea light candles.
I used hot glue to keep the twine wrapped around the tops of the jars.
You can stencil the numbers but I just did it freehand  🙂  …
