Advent calendar 3
Welcome to the opening of door number three.
So, let me ask you this... What does one do with an empty Nutella jar (that is after one has stopped mourning the fact that it is, indeed, empty)?
Well, one possibility is of course to wrap it in hessian/burlap fabric, stamp a dragonfly (or something else) on it, wrap some string around it, place a tea light inside and voilà, a small votive that lets out a lovely warm light when lit (even if the dragonflies can't be seen very well when the candle is lit).
Now, these look quite nice in a group, so given that I first made them with Christmas presents in mind, I am now quite happy that my Nutella consumption is rather... ehm, impressive, as this has allowed me to make some to give away and still keep a few!
Now, let's get munching on that next jar, shall we? All of a sudden, I can think of quite a few friends who might just need some votives for Christmas...
