Do you ever feel like your home is overrun by the children who live in it? We have 4 children and before they arrived, my home felt cozy, warm, clean and it represented my personal style. Not so much anymore. I recently told my husband that I want our home to be a representation of me, my style, my decor.  It started with the YELLOW painted walls in the kitchen and then I started thinking about spring and brightening things up, and so there you have it, a total REVAMP of our home decor.

So far, I’ve redone one bathroom, decided what color to bring into the living room, organized my daughter’s toys in fun colorful bins, and now I’m working on smaller elements that I’ll use to put  my own personalized touch on things. Starting with these totally fabulous “Spring Candles”, they’re easy and inexpensive to create.



Glass Jarred Candles (Christmas Gift)

Decorative Tissue Paper ($1 store)

Mod Podge (On hand)

Foam Brush (On hand)

Lace Ribbon (Walmart, $1)

Twine (Target Dollar Spot)

Embellishments (Michael’s Clearance)

Hot Glue Gun



1. Wipe down the glass jar to ensure that its clean.

2. Trim down the tissue paper to where it will cover the center of your jarred candle with a little bit of overhang.


3. Using your foam brush apply some mod podge to your jar, either all at once or a little at a time. Start adhering your tissue paper to the jar, smooshing it as you go along to give it a bit of added texture, until the entire center portion is covered. Cut off any excess.

4. Allow time to dry and add a coat of mod podge on top to seal it and give it a somewhat glossy appearance.

5. Once its completely dry, you can embellish. Tie ribbon, lace, twine, or burlap around the center. I used 1″ Lace Ribbon and Twine and tied a knot.


6. Using a hot glue gun, adhere the embellishment on the knot of the tied ribbon. That’s it!

    Thank you Jamie, Embellishments don’t have to be purchased at Michael’s, you can find embellishments in every day things. Though I do love and enjoy their clearance, Target has been great to me lately!! I’m in love with them and CANNOT wait to make more!
