Spending time in the north woods always inspires me to do some thing creative with the things that I find outdoors. In the woods near my Mom's home there is an abundance of mossy twigs. I have always loved the way that the moss grows and makes the branches of the trees look like they have a fine lace hanging from them. Again, with the fall decor in my home this season taking on a more natural look I thought I could use these twigs to make a jar candle that I will use on the table in the dinning room.
Using a jar from a jar candle, I began hot gluing the twigs to the jar being sure to cover the area completely. When the twigs did not fit close enough to cover the glass, I just took some of the really fine ones and glue them in to fit.
This is a perfect addition to my natural dinning room table decor. Adding a candle to it so that the light shines through the small spaces looks so good. I wish I would have made several sizes, but this is the only one that I made. Shoot, I guess that I will have to go back to the north woods to make a whole display of these.
