DIY Candle Lanterns


Here’s a great DIY project to work on this weekend.  Make your own outdoor candle lanterns to dress up your porch or yard! These are so easy, plus they make a stylish statement without breaking the bank.

Here’s what you’ll need:
Mason Jars
Sand – *Optional alternative to Pebbles*

All of these items can be found at Walmart in the craft section, Michael’s Craft Store, or your local craft shop.



Here’s how you make them:
Drill a hole on each side if the lid of the mason jar.  Run the wire through and twist it with needle nose pliers. Then add your pebbles and placed a votive candle holder inside.  Easy enough, right?!



If you prefer, you can skip the wire part all together and just set the jars on a table outside to enjoy.
Special thanks to my friend Dee for taking all of the pictures and sharing this with us.  Thanks, Dee! xo!!

  1. Thanks so much for the DIY Candle Lanterns! Last year we took our first vacation and we went in an RV to Williamsburg, VA. We had such a great time. I’m hoping we can go again this year, however, financially I highly doubt it. However, These DIY Candle Lanterns would have been so nice to have taken with us last year! I have some citronella votive candles which I could use in these jars to keep away those pesky mosquitos!! I think I’m going to have to find my ball jars and the matching lids and make a couple of these! I absolutely love this idea!!!! Thanks for sharing your DIY Candle Lanterns with all of us! I honestly do appreciate this! Thanks again so much! Michele 🙂

  2. I really love these, I have so many mason jars and we are going to be spending a ton of time at our new pool so I will have to make these!
