    Mark- I love this! I have about 100 baby food jars that I've been in the process of making luminaries out of. This is about 30x easier and prettier too. Thank you so much. I'll send you pics Donna

    That's going to look fantastic Donna! I can't wait to see what you do with them!

    That is so beautiful and I'm going to try it.

    If we make them into candle holders, does the spray paint catch in fire? If using as a candle holder, will the heart of the candle cause the glue on the stones to melt? Sorry new to crafting and still learning.

    Most larger candles burn through the center, so it should be fine. Mine are just fine actually. Also, use E-6000 glue instead of a glue that melts. Hot glue wouldn't work. Hope that helps.

    Thank you Mr. Hacks. Much appreciated.
