Wednesday's Inspired Project

Hello all! As I may have mentioned before, I have a new and growing obsession with candles. Unfortunately, candles involve matches, and match-boxes are extremely unattractive. Here is my solution:
All you need is a box of small matches, a little jar (preferably with a cork stopper for cuteness--mine cost 50 cents at the craft store), scissors and glue. Simply fill the jar with the matches, cut off a little strip of the strike-able part of the box, and glue it onto the bottom of the jar where it won't be seen. Et voila! Match storage that you actually leave out on purpose. 
(Thank you to my mother for owning a working camera :)
More projects to come soon--just wait until you see the scarf and wristwarmers I have made/am making for fall! How could some people not love the coming time of year?
Pumpkin spice candles just may be in order.
