Wedding Ideas - Candle Center Pieces

We used half-pint (8 ounce) canning jars to make our wedding candle center pieces.  The jars were first painted with a mixture of Mod Podge and gold glitter and allowed to dry.

On this candle center piece, we glued on two different ribbons using the Mod Podge and glitter mixture.  The gold ribbon is very thick and heavy and I need to secure it further with hot glue.

The flourish "G" was cut at 2" from Cricut Tie the Knot cartridge.  It too was attached with the Mod Podge glitter.  Once dried, a second coat of Mod Podge was added.

The doves are from a Martha Stewart punch.  One is glued on the inside of the glass and the other on the outside.

After everything dried, I added some orange sand (found in the children's craft section at Michaels).  A flameless candle has been added to finish this candle piece.

The bottom of the second candle was created by pouring in a small amount of orange paint and allowing to dry.  The glitter Mod Podge mixture was then painted on the inside of the glass (as well as the outside). 

The "Mr. & Mrs." image was cut at 2" from the Cricut Sweethearts cartridge; found on page 63 of the folder.  The image was attached with the glitter Mod Podge mixture to the outside of the glass.  A second coat was added once the first coat dried.

The dove is from a Martha Stewart punch and has been glued to the inside of the glass with the glitter Mod Podge mixture. 

The bottom of the jar is one layer orange sand, one layer white sand.  A flameless candle is sitting on top of the sand.

The ribbon around the top is merely tied on to the jar.
