Jam Jar Candles

Our fabulous jam jars aren’t just perfect for storing your homemade preserves; in fact, they’re a great way to give your amateur candles a unique glow, or just create an eye-catching set piece for your living room. Either fill the jar with your own, homemade wax, (personally we love a good festive apple and cinnamon blend), or use a ready-made candle from your local supermarket. As the flame dances around in the jar, you’re sure to be treated to a spectacular lightshow – no matter what your budget!

Fairy Light Fixtures

Combining a cheap set of fairy lights with a beautiful branded Kilner jar is a fantastic way to create a unique lighting fixture that looks equally at home in the living room, bar or cafe! Battery-powered fairy lights come in loads of shapes, colours and quantities, so feel free to experiment with different types to change up the atmosphere of your interiors – why not blend some red and gold sets this Christmas for a warm festive feeling? Fairy light jars can even be hung from the ceiling, but take extra care to make sure they’re safe and secure!

Desk Tidies

A tidy desk equals a tidy mind, right? Well if that’s the case, what does a unique and creative, beautifully organised desk equal? Jam jars have long had their place in the kitchen and lounge, and now fit right in on the modern (albeit retro-inspired) desk! Our versatile 1lb jars are great for storing pens and other stationery, and generally keeping your desk in good order so you can focus on getting creative. If you’ve got a glue gun lying around, why not try this unique stackable option courtesy of Musely?

All Natural Flower Pots
