Dandelions and Dragonflies Alight
"Well, now what?" My legs responded by taking me to the aisle of home decor, where I found a sheet of wall decals and a two-pack of fake tealights--into the basket they went.
Ugh, enough about taxes (my conscience is reminding me that taxes are due soon); let's get to crafting.
First, let me put your mind at ease: I didn't go home and scarf down a bottle of pickled vegetables! I washed the contents out and dumped them in the yard debris bin. I peeled the label off and applied a thin layer of vegetable oil on the sticky residue. This made it a lot easier to wash the residue off with dish soap.
I hope you're not judging me for throwing away food. I'm sorry. If it makes you feel better one of the tealights doesn't work, so I essentially wasted 50 cents (and some tax).
Okay, if you're still with me, I applied the decals onto the upside-down jar. Because the jar had some curves, I had to snip the decals at those bumpy areas to avoid any creases.
I used masking tape to stick the tealight to the bottom of the lid, but that's not necessary.
