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 (like this here), and the greenery was trimmed from a swag (no one will ever notice the missing corner, right? 😉 ). These flameless tea lights are useful for busy moms who might forget to blow out the candles.
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?
