I love lights hanging in the trees. So, i wanted to do some kind of lantern that i could make myself. My niece goes through an amazing amount of apple sauce and i found a way to turn the jars into cute lanterns.
For this project you will need:
Glass Jars, Lace, burlap, fabric (you can decorate them with pretty much anything), Glue gun, Wire and something to cut with.
Cut the fabric to the right size.
With your glue gun, put a dot of glue on the jar.
Start gluing your fabric around the jar.
When you get to the end, just finish it off with some glue. (i love glue guns)
Half way done!
I found this awesome, heavy floral wire.
Measure the wire by wrapping it 1 1/2 times around the top of the jar.
With your fingers, twist a loop on one side. Then twist the loose ends.
Using the wire cutters, twist the loose ends into another loop.
Thats it! I can’t wait to see what they will look like in the trees with some tea light candles.
Hope you enjoyed!
