We tasked our first Reuse Design Contest winner, Laura Russell, expert crafter for the month of February and the mind behind the Make Life Lovely blog, to cook up a reuse solution for used baby food jars in response to a frequently asked reader question on Earth911’s Facebook page. This is one of  three delightful DIY projects she created out of these mini glass jars. In Russell’s own words, here’s a full tutorial for her upcycled plant and candle holder so you can recreate the magic for yourself.
