If you’re decorating for an indoor event, like a wedding or party, this would work really well. You’ll get the darling mason jar lantern look, while meeting the fire code at the same time. They’ll also be darling lining any table for an outdoor event as well!
You will see how simple this lantern—literally 3 minutes. LOVE that!
- Half pint mason jars
- Battery operated votives -
- Double stick tape
1. Set the mason jar lid upside down, and use a piece of double stick tape to attach the candle to the center.
I use double stick tape because it’s strong enough to make sure the candle doesn’t move, but not so strong that you can’t easily remove it when you need to switch it on and off.
2. Place the lid inside the ring, turn your mason jar upside down, and screw on the lid, so the candle is on the inside bottom.
3. Tie a piece of twine around the jar, and you’re set! You can color coordinate ribbon or fabric instead of the twine if you want it to match a certain theme or color scheme, i.e. wedding colors. That’s it!!! I told you it was so easy!!!
