This simple craft is perfect for summertime, and can make pretty outdoor centerpieces for a wedding or backyard get-together. I first discovered this idea on Nest of Posies blog and knew I had to try it. The ingredients are simple and easy to find at my local grocery store, plus I used fresh herbs from my garden!
- Mason jars
- Floating candles
- Lemons and limes
- Citronella essential oil (I found mine at Whole Foods)
- Fresh herbs
- Favor tags from Evermine
- Twine or ribbon
- To assemble my candles, I first sliced up the lemons and limes. The fruit will float in the jar, so I recommend adding them in last. Place your fresh herbs in each jar (I used rosemary, lemon thyme, lavender and chamomile from my garden). Fill the jar about half way with water and add about 10 drops of citronella oil to the herb and water mixture. Next, add in the sliced citrus and fill the jar the rest of the way up with water. Finally I added the floating candle and tied a fancy shape favor tag around the jar with twine.
