A Little Light in a Basket

I did have an inspiring weekend.  I was flipping through "Flea Market Gardens" magazine and I saw an image that inspired me.  I put together this little decoration to sit on my hearth. 

I set a trivet in the bottom of the this old wire egg basket so that the jars would have a solid, flat surface on which to sit.  Then I took my jars and put some rocks (the kind you can purchase in the floral section) in the bottom and then added the votive candles.  I placed the jars on the trivet and then surrounded them with some Spanish moss I had on hand.  It makes a lovely nature-inspired decoration for the hearth and looks very pretty all light up, don't you think?  It was a fun little project and very easy to do.
