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
Wire
Pebbles
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!!
