Here was another of my large endevors this past Christmas - I made 15 (I think?) nugget jars and decorated 8 (?) candles. It wasn't difficult at all, and dare I say fun! Anyway, so remember how I showed you all my nugget tin alternative of using mason jars to put the yummy chocolate nuggets into? Well, this is what started it all. See the mason jar on the right? Well, these are my husbands and my FAVORITE candles EVER. They are from Our Own Candle Company. They boast having the best color, scent and burn - and Hubby and I think they're right! These mason jar candles last *forever* (or, approximately 100 hours! ;) ) and they smell *fantastic*! The one featured here is French Vanilla - yum! But, my personal favorites are Raspberry, Pumpkin Spice and Lavendar Chamomile. Moving on, Hubby and I often buy these to keep around the house not only for our personal use, but to give as gifts. We decided that I should decorate some for Christmas this past year. I thought it was a good idea, but wanted to include something else as well. When I heard about Papertrey's nugget tins, I knew that would be just perfect - but they ran out before I could buy some! Well, after staring at the candles for a while, trying to figure out what to do, it dawned on me! DUH! I could use plain mason jars which would show the beautiful nuggets AND would coordinate perfectly with my candles! Woo Hoo! Anyway, that was how the idea came to me, and I must admit that everything pulled together much better than I could have imagined!
