Dress up your home for fall with this glass yogurt jar craft. Gather natural materials from your yard, or use miniature pumpkins from the craft store, to create pretty seasonal tealight candle holders.
How pretty are these fall glass tealight candle holders? They feature a mix of natural elements and miniature fall decor from the craft store.
They’re just one of the many pretty and useful things you can make from upcycled glass yogurt jars.
I even used dried orange slices from potpourri on some of the jars.
I’m sharing the tutorial for this glass yogurt jar craft as part of a fall ideas tour with some of my favorite bloggers. You’ll find links to fall mantels, fall tablescapes, fall DIY and craft projects, fall recipes and gorgeous fall porches at the end of this post.

You can buy new glass yogurt jars for this project, but I love recycling the Yoplait Oui jars for this glass yogurt jar craft.
The hardest part of this project is removing the labels. I recommend using Goo Gone to dissolve the adhesive on the labels. The jars will be oily, so I recommend running them through the dishwasher or hand washing. Use rubbing alcohol to remove any remaining residue.
Tie several pieces of raffia around the neck of the jar. I recommend adding a dab of glue under the knot so the raffia doesn’t slip down the jar. You may also want to add a bit of glue under the raffia on the backside of the jar, as well.
For my jars, I used a mix of natural materials, potpourri and store bought items from my fall decor stash. I’m all for using what you have on hand.
Just keep layering on items until you like the look. Trim the raffia, as necessary.
Once the glue had dried, add tealight candles to the jars. Battery-powered tealights are great because you don’t have to worry about fire risk and you can leave them on all the time.
I’m using these fall tealight candle holders as a simple centerpiece on our kitchen table. They look so pretty set on top of old books and displayed alongside crabapples, fall squash and antique blue mason jars.
