CUTE MASON JAR MINI PLANTERS

Super simple idea here ya’ll. If you like little mason jars as much as I do, you may like this.
I started off with these clear, plain and simple little cute Mason Jars.
I just took some little new growths of  “Hen & Chicks,” (I think, no idea really about names, but someone told me they were) separated them,
 added some more good ground dirt to the jar 
 and stuck them in their very own mason jar.
That was pretty much all there was to it.
Now I know this doesn’t give the little plantings much room, but I don’t mind transplanting them on down the road into something larger.  
But as for now, I am loving having the little brown, grubby jar sitting on my desk.

I even stuck one in this cute little dish I found at a flea market.
I love it!
Happy Crafting Ya’ll,

Grubby Silicone Candle Bulbs Recipe

Do you need to make some primitive looking bulbs?
I use this recipe to do both the electric taper bulbs and the night light bulbs.

Here’s how.

I took some clear silicone (the higher priced one, not the white caulk kind) and mixed in some cinnamon spice in a throw away bowl.


Just mix it until it’s a nice smooth brown color. No real recipe here. Just play around with it. It should look something like this:

Then I took the little candles, one by one, and hand dipped each flame. I just stuck it in, twirled it once and pulled it straight out, in an upward motion. Kinda fast, so that it gives a nice tip to the flame.

I let them sit and dry in the sun for a few hours. It took longer than I thought for the 100% silicone to dry. But well worth the time.

Then after they were finally dry, they were ready to grubby on up!

See how I did the bases of these battery operated candles in the other post, found here.
