I don't feel right calling this a Pinterest Fail, or a Pinterest Win, or a Pinterest Anything. Why? Because I knew the original idea would fail. And why? Because candles + glass in close proximity = scorch marks. Because Elmer's Glue + fire = burning. And I wasn't ready to mess up three perfectly wonderful jars because of a project gone awry.
So this is how you get the same results without the horrible, sticky mess and the smell of burning glue.
Rust-oleum Frosted Glass Spraypaint
3 Glass Jars of varying heights
Electric tea candles
I cannot stress electric tea candles enough, especially if you are doing anything with lidded jars. Even if you don't get scorched glass, most lids are airtight (or airtight enough) that you'll smother the flame pretty quickly. Not to mention that whole pesky "fire hazard" thing.
I recently found out that some websites call for solar lights over tea candles. And while I still am iffy about the Elmer's Glue, I like the idea of the solar lights as well.
