I’ve been making over my deck, little by little. I’ve been sprucing it up with paint, color, and flowers. Take a look at my easy plastic chair makeover. While sitting there the other night enjoying a peaceful evening I thought my little yellow table needed something. As the sun set I knew that little something had to provide some light.

Back in the house I went through my craft stash and pulled out 4 jars; one from marinara sauce, and 3 spice jars. I save almost all my jars…I might have a slight obsession with them :) But they do come in handy!
I cleaned up the jars and took the labels off. The easiest way I’ve found to take off sticky labels is to put the jar in a glass bowl (or the sink depending on the size) and pour boiling water over the top. Let it soak for a bit then peel off the label. If there is still residue Goo Gone always does the trick.
Once clean I got out my other supplies
- Martha Stewart Frost Translucent Glass Paint
- Sponge Brush
- Tea Lights
I propped up the jar on my fingers and painted the outside. Spread a very thin coat, you will have some streaks but they will dry almost smooth. A few streaks may remain but mine are not very noticeable.
I let the jars dry then wrapped some blue and white bakers twine around the tops.
I love how these look on a simple silver tray on my yellow table. They added just the right amount of soft light and ambiance on my deck yesterday evening.
How do you decorate your outdoor space?
