Wonder-fall Magazine Inspiration Jar Candles

You all know how much I love my magazines! I think it's fun to look for the elements of the vignettes in the photograhs and then try to "re-create" them in my own way. This is from a Country Living Magazine a couple of years back. Old metal or wire milk bottle containers are becoming harder to find, but I located this one last year, and thought I'd put together my own version of this old mason jar holder with candy corn.

I have this blue child's vintage chair that won
the honors for this little display.

I couldn't find the taller column candles in the diameter
that I needed to fit the old canning jars, but these little 
Yankee Candle scented votives work just fine.

This works great for outdoors or on the porch because
 the flame is protected in the jar.
And the candy corn and autumn scented candles,
really put off a "glow"!

I really love this little carrier, some of the
larger ones hold 4 or 6 jars.
Fun and easily portable.

  5. Love the jar candles...great pics! Isn't it so much fun creating vignettes and all? Well, have a great week,

  6. I like the little candles...they look just like the candy!

  7. Hi Debra. I've been out of town and I'm making the rounds now to catch up. :)

    Your candles display is just perfect. So many wonderful ideas!

    I will definitely go look at your Bible study blog. I'm participating in a Beth Moore study of the Patriarchs right now at church. It's great!

  8. I think I remember that issue of Country Living. You have done a fine job recreating this vignette. I am going over to visit your other blog...blessings....

  9. That's a great idea. I'm not only going to use it in my home, but in my booth as well (minus burning candles, of course!).
    Big hugs to you!

  10. Hello Debra, what a cute idea with the candy in the jars with the candles. That carrier is toooo cute! sandi

  11. cute as can be!!! love carmel corn colors...

  12. Love the candles in the jars and the wire holders. We see so many great ideas in mags and with a little tweaking, can make it our own. Now where did I put those back issues of Country Home? :o} have a wonderful week *elaine*

  13. Oh what a wonderful idea, these are so creative and festive.


  14. great job on your re-creation. I too love my magazines.

  15. What a super idea! And, if you burn it long enough, will you have roasted candy corn??? Love the look!

  16. Sweet! :D What is it about candy corn that just says Fall! This looks cozy on the porch!

  17. Hi Debra,
    I rmember that idea and it's great!! Looks so sweet on the blue chair.
    I would join your Bible study, however I'm already doing Bible Study Fellowship and another one with the gals from church..
    Happy Monday.
    Deb :)

  18. That is the cutest idea I have seen and simple to recreate.
    You can have a little sugar to boot.

  19. So cute! Love this idea....perfect on that chair as well!

  20. Hi Debra,

    Love your little display! Now, I need to find one of those olders! lol

    Another Debbie

  21. This is so cute the idea and the inspiration. Thanks for joining in...if you could just add that you are joining the magazine copy cat that would be great. Thanks.

  22. That is one of my favorite Pinterest fall photos. Funny thing is, I've subscribed to that magazine for almost 20 years, and I don't remember it in the magazine. You're so fortunate to have the drink caddy. I've not been able to find one! Your version of it looks great!

  23. That is so sweet and looks like it would be easy to do! Love it!
