recycled Lipton tea jars

There is a saying in the south that if the Good Lord made anything better than iced tea, he kept it for himself. We drink a lot of tea around here. My husband and son love sweet tea & I drink it unsweetened. My husband and son also love MickeyD sweet tea for a buck!
This summer I had a collection of empty tea jars so I wanted to see what I could do with them. I was inspired by a Plaid video showcasing Mod Podge and glass jars.
I adapted the project so I could call on some of my digital graphic stash to make these candle holders.
For my digital graphics I printed a paper of antique maps from  Miss Crow's Magickal Emporium™ ,
Jaguarwoman's "Wetlands" Backgrounds and my all time favorite designer Miki Ferkul.I have a lot of Miki's kits and I cannot remember which one that this print came from.
I printed these and applied them to the jars with Mod Podge. I opted for battery operated candles for safety reasons.
Hopefully tomorrow I can take photos of recycled projects that are on my front porch.
