Candy Jars

This wedding is indeed the wedding held together by hot-glue.  I have at least one burn on my fingers each day.  Speaking of, does the smell of hot-glue make anyone else as happy as it does me?  When I smell it, it makes me think of crafting and making something fun.  


On Tuesday night, Michael was working late on the computer in the living room, and I was clearing my dining room table of the dozens of glass jars that will be used in the wedding on Saturday.  I had bought some yellow and grey chocolates that day as an impulse buy at Party City, and the idea came to me that I have several small, squatty Ball jars that could go on each table and house the candies.  

But how to dress it up???

Well, I did what I always do.  I looked around at the scraps of crap that I had lying around and came up with this.
I LOVE them!  Like really, I even bragged about them to my friends when I had finished them.  And they were super quick to make.

So here's what I did.  I took a yellow, silk flower, and I pulled it apart and hot-glued a piece (each piece had 3 petals) to the top of each jar.  
I had this silver, silky, thick, rayon type of fabric that was a wine bottle bag, so I cut it into strips.
Then I twisted up the silver fabric into a rosette, hot-glued it to the flower - bada bing bada boom!!  I love simple, easy, and beautiful!  My favorites.  :)
I can't wait until Saturday to see it all come together.  I'm so ready for the bachelorette party tonight, too!  After all this prepping, I need a drink and some laughs!

By the way, if you missed it, I was over at Creative Carmella's yesterday with other wedding crafts.  Go see!!!
