last minute gift: DIY candle jars

Hello guys!

Shock shock boom: the day after tomorrow is Christmas already!
I'm so glad I have all the presents together by now - although I have to admit I did some last minute shopping yesterday. And some last minute crafting too!
After having moved into the new apartment I'm pretty broke, so some presents had to be cheap DIYs this year.

Here is an easy-peasy idea for lovely christmassy candle jars.

You need:

- jars from the 1 dollar (or euro) shop
- old newspaper or even better: yellowed books
- paste glue
- golden spray paint
- decoration charms, ribbons etc.

Simply paste stripes of the paper around the jars with the paste glue, decorate with the spray paint if you like. Let it dry over night.
The next day you can add the ribbon or other decoration to make it look festive.
Don't forget to put a candle inside!
Et voilà, that's it!

Hope you like it! :)
I will be back with lots of photos after the Christmas holidays!
Have a lovely time everyone!

Until next time,
