merry & bright | momenta

During my last trip to the craft store, I stocked up on jar candles to embellish as gifts,  and I just couldn't give this candle it's mine, all mine!

Guess what? There's not a single item I used to embellish this candle that is actually a holiday themed item. The green striped paper and the red star paper are the "B" sides to double-sided papers in the Family Outings Premium Paper Pad and I think they are just so fun, so bright and so perfect for our family room mantle. The white glitter puffy alphabet stickers have a sparkly shimmer to them with a fleck of red that complements the red star patterned paper so well!

Layering scallop and round punched shapes under the Flair button, which you know is one of my favorite embellishments, is a nice way to give the top of the jar candle a more finished look. You can see more of my projects using Flair buttons here.

And here's how this once plain candle looks on our mantle with a few other Christmas decorations. I'm kind of partial to the fingerprint snowman votive holder next to it that my now 20-year old son, Zach, made in elementary school. Why do they grow up so quickly?

May Your Holidays be Merry & Bright!
