Weekend DIY!

Here's a quick DIY idea that you can use for either nesting your cute house, or use as centerpieces at your reception! Either way, these bookpage jars look so charming with a candle in them at night. They're easy to make, and I can almost guarantee you already have everything to make them.


  • old bookpages, drawings, maps, woodgrain contact paper, anything paper!
  • mod-podge & a brush
  • jars (make sure you can fit a candle inside them first) or hurricane glass

Step 1 - Rinse out your jars and remove labels. A good way to get labels off is to first fill the jars with hot water, let them soak a few minutes, and while the hot water is in the jar, just peel the label off. Brilliant. (Thanks, mom)

Step 2 - Pick out your pages and glue them with mod-podge onto the jars.

Step 3 - Let your jars dry on wax paper for a few hours.

Step 4 - Do extra decorating if you like - tie ribbon or string around for a little more color!

Step 5 - Put candles in and you're done. Put them around your house, or set them aside in a box for your reception!
