diy matchstick holder.

this project has been on my {insanely long} to do list forever, but I finally did it! & this is such an easy DIY that I feel silly even having a step-by-step tutorial. seriously.

I am not a huge candle burner (it scares me to death that I will accidently leave a candle burning!) but I do like having candles as décor. on the off-chance that I do want to light a candle though, I wanted a matchstick holder that looked nicer than a matchbox.

yep, this is a tutorial for gluing a strike pad on the bottom of a glass jar!

supplies:

  • glass jar or container (I used a small Diptyque candle)
  • box of matches – you will need the strike pad & matches (you could also probably use sandpaper)
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • glue

{cut out the strike pad // trace & cut to fit to slightly smaller than the bottom of the container}

{glue the strike pad down & let dry // add matches}
