In a fresh LIGHT

I decided to turn an old glass jar into a pretty tealight holder. I took the patterned layer off the top of some napkins, wrapped it around the jar and applied PVA glue over the napkin to stick it to the glass. Once it had dried, I glued some twine around the top of the jar before popping a tealight inside. Hannah Walters, West Bridgford, Notts
