What a pretty idea! Not all of us have time to make our own jam or have time to think about what to do with empty jam jars other than toss them in the recycling box, so how about this for a quick, pretty and inexpensive way to make a little something from nothing.
Scarlett Willow sells this cute set of three paper table lanterns that are available in a contemporary tree design. The Shine Lanterns set comes in a mix and match range of reversible patterns and styles, in funky hues of coral, teal, yellow and turquoise.
Simply wrap around an empty jam jar, pop in a tealight and watch the gentle flicker of candlelight patterns across the room. I agree with Scarlett Willow "simple but beautiful". Best of all they are on sale - they were £9.25, now £7.40 for a set of 3.
(Size: 15cm, lanterns come flat-packed).
Scarlett Willow also sells a beautiful selection of tableware and kitchenware, lots of which can be personalised, bringing style and design to your table.
I think the "placemap" personalised map placemats are brilliant for sparking conversation at the dinner table, don't you...
