DIY - Glass stone candle jar

I saw a really cute project from Dollar Tree and was motivated to try this myself!!! Not only is it easy as pie, but it's really cute and looks lovely at night!! Make sure you stop on by at DIY By Design where I had the great opportunity to guest post!!

My supply list:

  • colored glass stones (one bag per candle jar)
  • clear glass candle jar
  • glue gun
  • patience

I dumped out the stones and sorted them by color to make it easier to keep a pattern going. 

Sorting made it easier to place the darkest blue pieces
twice in one row since they were the least abundant!
These weren't necessary to sort,
since there were only three colors.

Then, I began gluing! The oblong stones were placed horizontally and vertically in whatever manner I could fit them!!

The round stones were easier to place in a row with two dark blue stones per row. There was a tight squeeze at the end of a row, and I had to overlap a stone...but on the finished product, you've never even know it wasn't a super snug fit!!

If you've ever worked with a glue gun before, you'll be well aware of the "stringage" you get!! These strings were easily pulled right off, so don't panic!!

Also, I came across a few misplaced stones, and was pleasantly surprised at how nicely the dried glue peeled right off of the stone.

And here are the finished products!! Cute as can be!!

    1. Thanks Ashley! I haven't tried them at night yet, but I can imagine they'd look even better!

    p.s. Ever think about turning off the comment moderation? Many people won't leave comments on blogs that use it, and I usually don't either. My eyes are bad and I end up entering it like 3 times...haha. You really will not get much crazy stuff on there- I get like 1 comment ever few months that I need to send to spam or delete. Just a thought:)

    1. Thanks for the heads up Kim!!! I wondered why I had to publish them!!! Didn't realize I turned moderation on!!! lol

      I hope you're able to make them for the party! They sound like the perfect fit!! Let me know if you do so I can come by and see the pics!!!!

  5. These would be great on my dinning table when I host a dinner for my son's fiances family. I love the way they look with candles.

  11. I really like those voltive holders! Nice work. Thanks for sharing them at Monday Funday!

  12. I did this with a large pickle jar and it turned out beautiful! The only difference is that I didn't use a hot glue gun, I used a permanent craft glue that dries clear that I bought in Michaels.

  13. My husband is back!!! I had a problem with my husband 8 months ago,which lead to us apart. When he broke up with me,I was no longer myself,I felt so empty inside .Until a friend of mine told me about one of her spells that helped her in same problem too that she found on a television program. i emailed the spell caster and I told him my problem and I did what he asked me. To cut the story short,Before I knew what was happening,not up to 48 hours,my husband gave me a call and he come back to me and told me he was sorry about what has happened, I'm so grateful to this spell caster and i will not stop publishing his name on the internet just for the good work he has done for me.If you need his help,you can email him at (ezizaspellhome@gmail.com)or tel +2347068534025.....thank you sir great Dr.EZIZA for all that you do and i greatly appreciate that.
