DIY Monogrammed Candle Jars

I have many left over glass jars from all the candles that I burn. And lemme tell you, I burn A LOT of candles...

So, I've been eyeballing these monogrammed candle glass jars, but have you priced them? WOWZA! as many candles as I burn in a month.. I'd go broke! =) These were $29.95 for 2.

PB Monogrammed Candle Pot is $25.00

I found 2 sheets of these alphabet decals at the GW for less then a $1.00 and I knew I had to have them. Right now we are a bit decal crazed!

And I have a couple of these left over after burning. I really lub these glass jars because they have a black wooden lid and they are square vs. the usual round shaped jars YAY!!

This is how I did it;
1. I carefully placed the the decal on the jar, making sure it was lined up straight.

2. I rubbed the letter on w/ my nail, no biggie.

3. Slowly peel the paper backing off. Make sure none of the decal raises of the glass or it will wrinkle or rip or you'll have to start all over again.

This is how it turned out.

I love it!! I think it's so expensive looking but seriously if you saw it you'd never know it was a DIY.

It truly does not give the DIY vibe... I'm lourving decals! What do you do w/ them?


Thank you for visiting!!

Show me some love and follow me, I'd love to have you along for the journey =)

Cute, I wonder if this same process could be done with iron on letters and just using the iron to heat the glass to get the letters to stick. That being said I have a bunch o' iron ons if you want to give it a try ;)
