spiff up a candle for Easter!

As soon as the "wearin' of the green" was taken down, the Easter goodies went up! 

It seems that Easter is so early this year...there's no time to waste, so I thought I'd share an idea that's oh-so quick & easy. 




A postcard-wrapped jar candle is so simple, you'll easily make several in no time, and they're terrific for sharing with friends & family.

A trip to your local flea market will turn up oodles of vintage postcards for a song, or if you don't want to brave the still-wintry weather (it was 12 degrees when I took the kiddos to school this morning!), take a peek here to find lots of postcards, silhouettes, and other clever images you'll love.

Use decorative-edge scissors to cut a piece of colorful paper a bit larger than needed, then add a copy of your postcard or image...a bit of spray adhesive on the wrong side of the image will secure it, then another light spray of adhesive on the back of the paper will keep in place on your jar candle. 

You're done in no time at all, and now you have gift from the heart for sharing this
Easter season.
