QCC (Quick Christmas Craft): glass jar candle holder

bbnn_candle0

I know I know, some of you may think it’s yet too soon to think about Christmas, but it’s not, really… If shops can have their Christmas stuff already displayed, why can’t I? ☺

This candle holder is a very quick and easy thing to do, and it really gives a Christmassy coziness to any room. All you need is an empty and clean glass jar and a white pen that paints on glass, easy to find in any craft store. Alternatively, you could use white acrylic paint and a thin brush if you have a steady hand… ☺

It’s really so silly that I don’t think this post needs a “keep reading” jump.

Basically, you just need to start drawing and let your imagination guide you. Once you are done, place a little candle inside and that’s all.

We can mourn because the days are becoming shorter and the holidays are over, or we can embrace the good things of the Fall: like not being sweaty all the time, resurrecting your scarfs and cardigans from wherever you hid them last spring, using boots again (yei!), enjoying cozy drinks, new episodes of your favorite TV shows, and suddenly you feel like baking, and knitting, and cuddling again…

So, celebrate the new season with some decor for your home, like this easy felt leaves wall hanging. It’s as simple as (pumpkin) pie!

Hanging Plants in Water: Easy, Quick and Cheap

BBNN1

Hanging plants has become a thing in the past year. They are in every blog and in every shop. I love when I see all these macrame hangers… but I always think I have no place to hang them from. I’m definitely too scare to drill into the ceiling of my rented apartment… I can picture all sorts of catastrophic scenes, from me falling form the ladder with drilling debris in my eyes and ending blind for the rest of my life, to the whole ceiling collapsing and my scared neighbors looking at me through a big hole in their living room.

So, I ended up with a pretty good solution: hang my plants from a hanger for 3 reasons:
