Oh they are pretty, what a fantastic idea! that is something I can do with my 3 year old, she will love painting monsters and elephants which are her 2 favorite things on the jars, do you use wire to hang them up?

Hi Jacque,
Congratulations---- the garden lights are magical.
A lovely inspiring and creative idea for lighting the garden or a dining area outdoors at night.
Garden lighting can be very expensive.
Wait until summer Jacque- I can see you out in the garden enjoying a nice glass of wine and a super meal outdoors. Thats what gardening should be all about. Enjoying all the hard work and putting your feet up.
Well done again,
Best wishes,

I really enjoy seeing homemade things in gardens. Your tealights are great! (Did you use a special type of paint?

No its Old Nail Polish lol & its ok i did an experiment b4 i did more of them ; ) lol

They look GREAT Jacque and the nail polish will hold up very well on the glass. Have you thought about using wire so that you can hang some of them underneath a tree or patio ? The wire would wrap well around the mouths of the jars.
