Quick Teacher's Gift - Mini Kilner Jar Tealight Holders

Hello, hello, Karen here with an idea for a quick teacher's gift. I came across these cute little Kilner jars in The Range and I think they were about £1.50 or they may have been less. 

All you have to do for this very quick project is to cut out a silhouette of a town, from either black paper or vinyl and adhere it to your jar.

Step 1 - Cutting the silhouette of the town.

  • Measure the circumference of your jar.  Mine was 8.5 ins.
  • Open your chosen cutting file and duplicate right 
  • Move the two shapes so that they slightly overlap.
  • Ungroup the two designs and weld the two sets of buildings, also remove any elements you don't want before regrouping. 
  • Then resize it so that the width is the same as the circumference of your jar  

  • You are now ready to cut your design from either vinyl or paper.
  • Once cut adhere to your mini-Kilner jar and add some stars with glitter glue.
  • Add a tealight and you have a very quick but very pretty Teacher's gift.
