How-to: Mason Jar Lantern in 3 Steps!
This 3-step DIY mason jar lantern is perfect for lighting up your spring garden parties!
Don’t you just love spring weather? This is my favorite season – day after day of beautiful blue skies punctuated with blustery storms that make everything super lush and green. It’s perfect playing outside weather, and around here that means grilling and garden parties that go on into the evening.
Sure, you can use electric lights to illuminate your next shindig, but you can save some energy and add a little ambiance with a string of sweet little mason jar lanterns instead! Even if these rows of tea lights can’t completely replace electric light, even using a little bit less power means fewer dirty coal emissions, right? Also, these suckers are just plain cute! String them up in the trees for a firefly effect or skip the hanging and arrange them on the tabletop for some mood lighting.
My favorite part about this take on the mason jar lantern is that you don’t need any special tools to make it. No drilling, not even any strong glue, and it only takes three steps to make it!
