Tealight Holders For My Trees!


Since I wrote the paragraph below, I took some night pictures of the tealights and half of my front porch. I will be painting all the brown trim WHITE very soon. Just a little face~lift until we can paint the entire house. During the early evenings or cool late afternoons I have been found asleep on either of the two wicker couches with a crochet hook & yarn in my hand! I made some little tealight holders to hang in my trees today out of canning jars. If the winds are up I will use battery tealights but most of the time the regular tealights are perfect. This is the first batch of many I will make! I want them in the front yard and back yard for the pretty evenings we have been having. Just adds a little whimsy.
Simple to make and cute as a button (jar)! Yesterday I worked in the front yard flower bed...more rose trees to plant and some flowers. Love getting my hands in the dirt!

Love them. So romantic on a summer evening.

Connie said...

Maryjane, I love the look of those little tealight holders, chickee!! I'm going to make some but will have to wait until our trees are bigger to hold them. Maybe I'll put some around the house until then or on the front porch. Darling, honey.

I just LOVE those Maryjane! How sweet and whimsical with their cute calico rag bows...the torn fabric is a nice country touch! They'll add such a sweet, festive touch to your outdoor activities!!

Have a great week!

Those tealights are just darling. I can just immagine them all over your yard at night. We were so grateful for the battery operated ones for weddings.
Have a lovely day~
Alicia

Deb said...

Maryjane, what a cute idea...do you use real tea lights or the battery operated ones? I'm gonna have to make me some of these

Nancy Jo said...

Anne Fannie said...

Hi Maryjane,
Your tealights are so cute for the yard! I remember you made me one years ago, on a big wood heart, I still have it to this day in my garden!

Donna @ Party Wishes said...

Oh Maryjane! Those are just precious! I am totally stealing your idea :)

Kathy said...

Love your darling tea light holders to hang in your trees - I might make some!
xo...Kathy

jeannette stgermain said...

What an idea! And little cost!

Beverly said...

Such a romantic touch!...I would expect nothing less from our Maryjane!! Yes, I have to agree, there is something wonderful about working in the dirt.

Just a little something from Judy said...

Love these hanging jars! What a beautiful, romantic idea! Your front entrance way is so warm and inviting. You have a way of decorating that says, "come on in and make yourself at home". In this fast paced world, I like the thought of you curled up on the sofas, asleep. Keep on taking time to do that. It is so important...knitting needles and all.

Kate said...

so pretty. I love them!

Lisa said...

Yes they are cute as a button!

The Vintage Housewife... said...

Sassy said...

You just LIGHT up my life...you're so smart! ♥THEM! They will just be so beautiful...

Linda said...

I love the cotton fabric tied around the jars. It looks so airy, think about putting in citronella tealights to kill bugs as well has having a romantic lit yard. So pretty

Katmom said...

Oh MJ,
I love your clever little "tea lights"...how cute & how safe.

Trailer Trash said...

Hi Maryjane! I love the tea lights it is so cute, something about it reminds me of catching fire flies.

xoxo trailer trash

Julie said...

Oh! Miss MaryJane!
Those tealight holders are so pretty and I'll bet they're just "magical" at night.
I didn't know they made battery operated tealights?!? That's too neat!

I just love your porch, I don't blame you at all for napping out there -- it looks like another room, only outside. Just be careful of those knitting needles!

What color are you re-painting your home?!?!? Can't wait to hear!

Blessings,
Julie

Nancy Jo said...

mjl,
They look so petty at night don't they? How cute. Your porch is so pretty.Have to show a new picture after you paint. Of course you have to wake up in order to paint.

What a very cute idea...one I plan to borrow! Your ploace looks very welcoming.

Thanks for stopping by to visit me at My Front Porch...so nice to meet you!

Connie said...

Yesssssssss, it was you, chickee!! I look at so many bloggers I forget where I find things to do!

Oh, Jack is in Calif. with Keith this weekend giving him a father's priesthood blessing and the whole family if they want it. I think he's on the mend, sugar. He is "sounding" more like his old self.

xoxo,
Connie

Lynn said...

Your tealight holders are just adorable! I would love to make some. I'm trying to figure out from your picture how you attached the wire to the jars. Did you wrap a wire around each jar rim, then attach your wire holders to that? Help!! Thanks :)

Stefunkc said...

I have something like these hanging from my Magnolia tree surrounding my pool. I used wire, made three strands that attatch to a ring around the rim, and strung beads from them. Not one of them is the same as the next! I get tons of comments every summer on them!

Some say that it was discovered in GaGa's Record Label's headquarters.
