Supplies Needed for Your Mason Jar Lantern
- mason / ball jar
- mason jar open lid
- kitchen twine
- tea light candle
To Make a DIY Mason Jar Lantern…
- Cut your kitchen twine to 2 feet long
- Lightly screw on the kitchen twine onto the mason jar leaving enough room for the jar to hang
- double knot the twine to give it a little extra support
- Add your tea light candle to the inside of the mason jar, light your candle and hang your new lantern
We hung our ours from a large spruce tree we have just off of our outside deck that Jason had already added a few exterior screws to.
It added some extra light and ambience to our trees and complimented my new fairy lights and boxwood wreaths we added for a summer garden party we had a few weekends ago. You could even add some citronella candles to the ball jars to help keep the bugs away as well.
These Mason Jar lanterns are just about the simplest outdoor light you can make!
