Mason Jar Lanterns

These lanterns are so easy to make and can either be dressed up or down depending on the occasion your using them for.  They are so versatile because you can also decorate them according to the season or holiday.  For summer holidays, tie a patriotic ribbon around the middle and you've got yourself a festive decoration!

You'll Need:
  • Mason Jars (any size will do)
  • Medium weight wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Festive decorations
  • Candles

To begin, wrap a piece of wire around the top of the jar and secure it by twisting tightly.  Cut off any excess.  Next, cut 2 strips of wire to the desired length you'd like the jar to hang.  Tuck each piece under the secured wire that is wrapped around the top of the jar, secure by twisting the wire up.  Fill with festive decorations or with a candle!
