Recycled Rustic Candles: Part 1
Hello everyone! Happy Sunday! Today I wanted to show you a project that I started recently and am loving so far! So this project came together because of 2 reasons: I wanted to learn to crochet and I also had some glass bottles/jars that I wanted to do something with.
My Memere used to crochet and she had tried to teach me a few times but it had never really stuck for me. I'm not sure what prompted it but recently I decided that I wanted to learn and now know how to do a single stitch crocheting pretty well! I have plans to keep working on my crocheting and learn new stitches, but right now I am just getting comfortable with the single stitch. The video I used to help me learn is this one: www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcOzdAzmtNM. This lady has a very helpful series of crocheting for beginners!
Next we have the jars/bottles. I have a decent amount of both these taller glass bottles and these smaller jars. The bottles are from some overpriced juice I sometimes partake of from a restaurant near me. The smaller jars are actually leftover from the favors that were at our wedding.
I thought these jars would be perfect to make into candles as I also happen to have one million wicks because I once needed a few so I bought a giant pack on Amazon. To give these candles a little more something something, I thought it would be adorable to make little crocheted koozies of sorts for the jars. I have been working on them for the past few weeks and will continue to work on them until I have enough. The two general styles I am going for is a thicker yarn with some buttons and a thinner yarn with a little design crocheted on the front. Here are some examples:
Next time I talk about these I will show you how I candle-ified them and some more of the crocheted designs. And, to end the blog for today, here is a picture of my cat. Nobody asked for it, but she is adorable so I will be blessing you all with her cuteness.
Have a good rest of your Sunday everyone!
