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.

Light Pendants as Candle Holders

Thrifting is the best weekend therapy after a long work week.  I love digging and searching for the random goodies, especially when you don’t have anything in mind that you need or want.
