Crochet Pretty Beaded Covers To Dress Up Those Plain Glass Candle Jars!

Candles have lots of beauty when they are lit, but when not in action they're kind of... blah! Why not crochet a beautiful cover for the candle lid to dress it up to match your d├ęcor!

This crochets up very quickly with a small amount of #10 cotton thread and beads or crystals, and will fit a 4" round glass candle jar lid nicely

If you crochet it with size 20 thread and an accordingly smaller hook, (I used 9), it will fit a 2" round glass candle jar lid. I've shown both sizes here to give you an idea.

Hope you have as much fun crocheting it as I did! I just love fantasy flowers!

Gathering The Candle Drape To Fit The Lid - I Used .5 MM Clear Beading Elastic

It worked great! I placed the drape on the lid, decided at what point I wanted to gather it, and simply wove the elastic in and out all around that round. Then I tied it tightly in place on the candle. Done!

A Word About Thread Selection...

You can do this pattern in smaller size thread such as 20 or 30, resulting in a smaller candle drape.

      This is so lovely. I wish I knew how to crochet so I could make one of these for my Hallmark pet ghost in a jar! I added a link to this page on my pet ghost page so that those who know how to crochet can make a beaded drape for their pet ghost jars!
