While browsing the stalls, I spotted this:
I ran to JoAnn's Fabrics (1/2 yard of burlap - I know I'd use the surplus somewhere, 1/4 yard of a sale fabric that matched our newly painted walls) then to Michael's. I downloaded the 40% off coupon on my phone and purchased small candles. Next stop, Walmart. I bought the Mainstays brand pint jars ($7.00 for a dozen - $2 less than the name brand, plus they didn't have designs on the side), Epsom salt and twine.
When I got home, I dug through the cabinets and found a taller jar from spaghetti sauce to use in the center of the basket. I cut a strip of burlap and hot glued it together around the base. I cut a thinner strip of the fabric and hot glued that on the top of the burlap. I wrapped the twine around 3 - 4 times and tied it.
I filled each jar halfway with Epsom salt, and placed a candle in each. Added some flowers from the garden into the center jar, and I think it will make a nice centerpiece for the kitchen table! Not too shabby for a Saturday morning project!!
