moon jar luminaries- diy

I love this time of year, the dark and cold make me want to hibernate in my cozy home, bake goodies to warm up my kitchen, and make lovely things to compliment my home. Being such a dark time, it’s the perfect time for moon gazing and bringing the celestial into the house with these little moon phase luminaries.
