Advent calendars have been a fun Christmas tradition for Taryn, of Design, Dining + Diapers, since she was a small child. Now with children of her own, Taryn has plenty of baby food jars in need of recycling. She’s put them to good use for counting down the days until Christmas.
Taryn etched numbers onto 25 jars and put tea lights into the baby food jars. Now, a new candle can be lit each night before Christmas. These petite luminaries make a darling advent calendar. I love the symbolism and ambiance of candlelight at Christmas, and the cute little jars make this advent calendar absolutely adorable.
Taryn has a detailed tutorial for this project at Design, Dining + Diapers.
