Redneck Candle Holder for Christmas

How did crafts made with Mason Jars come to be “redneck”? When I go the the Farmer’s Market and buy apple sauce or jam or pickles and they are in a canning jar, I just think of how tasty the contents will be.

This candle holder builds on the redneck wine glass idea. You can make it pretty simply by yourself, but I admit there was a point where I could have used an extra finger as I knotted the lace and ribbon.
