A Candle Jar For Every Celebration III: Year of The Dog

This afternoon I cleaned out another apple sauce jar to make a candle light for Chinese New Year. I ripped up more gift paper and glued it to the glass. While it dried, I printed out “DOG” in Chinese Mandarin. When the name was added to the glass jar, I put candles in all three jars to honor each individual holiday of this week. Enjoy the photos. πŸ™‚

This morning I sprayed the jar with Frost Spray paint and let it dry in the sun. In the meantime I printed out the Mickey & Minnie silhouettes, I found on Pinterest. Once the jar was dry, I cut out the silhouettes and glued them carefully on the glass. Those little mouse tails always need a little extra attention. I usually put a little bit of glue on my finger, before I put it on the fine tails. It helps to prevent a mess. And I always can wash my hand afterwards. While the glue tried, I added someΒ πŸ’—-stickers and tinsel stems (pipe cleaners), which I purchased from the Dollar Store. Adding a tea candle to it gives it a romantic atmosphere. Now, all I need is some chocolate to celebrate the work I’ve done. πŸ˜‰

A Gift For Valentine’s Day

When Valentine’s Day is on a week day, we usually celebrate it the Sunday before or the Friday after. Today, the girls were excited to get some hot cocoa in different flavors. The weather forecast says, it suppose to be cold and rainy the next couple of days. It’s perfect for hot cocoa night. ❀
