Craft Class at The Creative Cactus

This year has been amazing. As many of you may know, we started out 4 years ago as a blog called, “Connoisseur of Creativity.” We loved that blog and will always remember where and how we began, but we decided with the new year that we needed a new name, new look and we needed to really start turning our dreams into reality. Texas Craft House was born in January and we hit the ground running – we are crafting more, blogging more, doing craft booths, opened an Etsy account, and started teaching craft classes at a local art and craft studio. This was a wonderful opportunity and we had so much fun teaching our first class on how to make Elisabeth’s very popular Americana wreath.

Patriotic Mason Jar Citronella Candles 

So my Aunt absolutely loves the Fourth of July. Every year it’s a big extravaganza at her house on Independence Day. Everyone gathers around and spends the entire day outside…. Then at night we set off fireworks. Problem is, bugs eat us alive!! I wanted to make a practical gift for her that she could keep out for decoration and help with the bug problem. So here are the mason jars I turned into citronella candles and painted like the American flag.
