One of the most underrated holidays is Thanksgiving. Although its origins come from not such a wonderful place. The current holiday is all about things that are important to me – family time, being thankful for what we have, and of course food.

That means an inviting table set up for your friends and family. With this simple Thanksgiving craft, I can help you do just that!

These simple to make Oui Yogurt Jar Candle Holder are the perfect Thanksgiving craft. They only take a few minutes to make, but you can enjoy them year after year.

The best part – the total project costs are below $5.00!! That includes a delicious yogurt you get to eat??.

Finished Product - Simple Thanksgiving Craft using Oui Yogurt Jars


  • Oui Yogurt Jar – at least 2 (but you may need more, depending on table size)
  • Fall Ribbon
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Glue Gun
  • Rubbing Alcohol (optional)



Step 1: Take a clean and empty Oui Yogurt Jar (or any similar small open glass jar you have on hand)

Step 2: Remove the labels from the jar. I found running hot water over the label made it easy to remove. Then I follow up with a quick wipe of rubbing alcohol if there is any residue left.

Step 3: Take a piece of festive ribbon and wrap it around the top of the jar, just under the lip. Make a tic mark where the ribbon touches the other end.

Step 4: Cut the ribbon at the tic mark.

Step 5: Take the cut ribbon and use it as a template to cut as many ribbons as you need. I put 2 on my table due to side restrictions, you may need more.

Step 6: Take your pre-heated glue gun and put a dab of glue on the glass jar. Affix the ribbon quickly to the glass jar where you placed the glue.

Step 8: Add the candle and light.
