Irony: a state of affairs that seems deliberately contrary to what one would expect.
I love it. Irony, that is. And not just because I’m a former English teacher… because it’s like a little surprise, just waiting to entertain you. And that’s how I felt – thoroughly entertained – when I was playing with these mason jar luminaries that are simply perfect for the holidays.
I won’t bore you with instructions. You can see what I did. The baker’s twine came from Target’s dollar spot, and the greenery was trimmed from a swag (no one will ever notice the missing corner, right? 😉 ).
I will direct you to my painting mason jars tutorial, if you’re interested. You can see that here.
But where lies the irony?
And no, it’s not because I was busy using them all fall in my kitchen to make jam.
I’m not sure why I find these trendy little jars so adorable, but I do. And after I put them together, I realized that they worked in almost every room of my house…
Adding their warm little glow…
So I kept moving them around. And I couldn’t resist taking pictures for you; hopefully at least one of these ideas will inspire you.
And then you can come back next week for my full tour to see where they ended up.
Where would you put them?
