Mason jars DIY

IMG_6660

My love for beautiful things has oh so many extents to all kinds of different areas, one of them, of course, being interior design and home decor. And man, when to appreciate the flow of life any better, than at that certain moment, when you find something old and useless, just to get an immediate idea of how to transform it into something beautiful and Pinterest worthy. And that's exactly what happened to me this morning.

I was just eating my breakfast on the balcony, while suddenly I notice this old, dusty mason jar in between my mother's plants. I looked it up, it was all empty and just crying out for a DIY. So, after a quick brainstorming, I decided to do something candle related, since I always wanted a beautiful spot like that in my room. I first tried poking some holes into the cover of the jar, appearance wise, but also hoping that the candle might get enough oxygen to burn even with the cover shut and just have a little mason jar light on the side of my bed. Needless to say: fail.

But, since I had really gotten into the project, I searched for each and every candle we own at our house and got this vision of a romantic, yet cool bedside candle diarrhea. I went into the kitchen and took my mother's vintage, metal tray that we never ever use and "borrowed it" to use it as some kind of a platform. I then started applying all the candles, trying to make it look as versatile as possible. And there, before I knew it, I had this beautiful candle display in front of me and my day was complete. All I could use now is the night, a lover and some Marvin Gaye in the background. Oh yeahhh.
