Stylish Jam Jar Lanterns
If so, you are in luck….another use coming your way….(drumroll)…….. in the form of these five minute, stylish jam jar lanterns.
- Jam Jars with labels removed
- White greaseproof paper
- String – I used gold embroidery thread – but any ribbon, twine, or thread of string to match your theme would be fine
- Tealights or short candles (battery operated or with a wick)
It took literally 10 minutes to make all of these jam jar lanterns for our Hogmanay (New Years Eve) party.
Cut a strip of white greaseproof paper approximately the size of the jar.
Secure with your choice of tie.
Pop a candle in the jar, and place liberally around your venue.
Thank you nature.
Instead, I tucked them inside the overhang of our front door anyway. I used a mix of battery and real tea lights (giving off a slightly different colour of light), but both equally effective.
Slightly more stylish than just simple teallights, and more easy to incorporate into your theme, especially for a wedding or similar.
My photography skills let me down somewhat with the dark night time shots. They are far prettier than this photo makes them look.If I’m honest, I think I may have seen Mr PSGC visibly wince when he saw me find another excuse to hoard jam jars.
