I have to confess to a big birthday coming up, with a small get together planned. Having invited friends and family for a BBQ, I realised we have a zero budget for the event.. hence decorating the garden in a thrifty fashion!

Create simple jam jar tea light holders.

You will need a tin of car spray paint, string, jam jars,  newspaper, and tea lights.

Wrap string around your jam jars. Some of these jam jars have been wrapped with string, some with garden twine to create subtle differences.

Lightly spray two coats of paint. Be careful not to overspray to avoid drips.


Leave to dry for 24 hours, and unwrap the string.

Add your candles, light and enjoy your cheap tea light holders:) Anyone for a BBQ?
