Mason Jar Summer Candlelight Lanterns

Are you ready for it?  A fail-proof Pinterest worthy craft project!  Yes, it does exist!  I admit I haven’t had the best of luck with Pinterest in the past. My projects NEVER look like the image and always edge on the side of failure than success.  However this project is truly fail-proof at a minimal cost.  It actually cost me $0, I had everything lying around the house.

What you need.

  • 1 Mason Jar (or as many as your little heart desires)
  • Pebbles or stones (I had left over pebbles from a Bamboo plant I killed.
  • Votive candle.

JOSB Jar candle and pebbles

Ready?  Put the lime in the coconut…ha ha just kidding.

  1. Take the cover off the Mason Jar.
  2. If you are taking stones from the outdoors, I would clean them.
  3. Put the stones in the jar.
  4. Add the candle for a finishing touch.

    My friend had hers and she was going to throw them out after an event. I swiped them from her. I mean they are aqua so I knew I was going to do something with them because that is my favorite color. Then when I killed the bamboo plant it dawned on me. I hope you enjoy them as well!

    Ha ha! That is great Joanna. I guess I had to make up for making you cry in the last one. How much do you think pregnancy hormones have to do with your reactions to my blog posts? 😉

    I am glad you liked it Brittany and if you don’t want to have to keep replacing the candle you can get the battery tea lights instead!
