Hello! Hello! Clever Tip alert!
The other day I decided to finally do this simple, clever little project! I’ve seen the idea floating around Pinterest and I love it. I thought you might like it too.
I used lots of matches before I started using the battery candles, which I’m rethinking by the way! I miss real candles!
The other day I bought a small candle and YES, I’m hooked again! The smell, the ambience, the glow! Hooked I tell ya!
So I pulled out my wooden matches to light it and remembered… this idea I had seen.
Look at that ratty ol’ box! Not very nice. Pinterest to the rescue!
I found the perfect jelly jar, put the matches in it and cut out the strikers from the box.
I got out my handy dandy glue gun:
Cut one of the strikers in half. (I put the other one away in case this one wears out).
Then I applied some glue!
There you have it. A much neater solution to keep your matches!
The match stick jars I’ve seen have the striker on the outside of a canning jar. I put them on the inside, to keep them from getting wet.
I think it’s the perfect, two second solution!
Now I need to go and get s’more candles!
Have a great day!
