Old Pickle Jars into Pottery Barn Knockoffs

You might want to think twice before recycling your old pickle jars.
 
Upcycle them instead.
 


The inspiration came from Pottery Barns large mason jars
 
 
 
My version was made from large gallon size pickle jars,
(not quite as large as Pottery Barns Jar)
with twine wrapped around the top, secured with hot glue
 and two small pinecones glued on too.
 
 
My front porch has seven steps, so I made three and placed one on every other step.
Also, there are fresh pine sprigs and holly under and around each one.


The jars have epsom salt with a pillar candle inside of them.
The salt reminds me of snow. It even sparkles a little.
 
 
I love all of the natural elements and simplicity of these.
 
 
They could even be made from smaller jars too
and I think they would look nice indoors as well.
 
What do you think?
 
Oooooh, I just thought of this -
wouldn't they look pretty with fresh cranberries around the candle instead of the "snow".
 
 
I hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season
and thank you so much for taking time to stop by.
 
 
'til next time,

  5. Burlap tied around the neck of the jar adorned with red holly berries would be pretty, too.
