Start collecting your glass jars and turn them into beautiful wedding decor!
|This is what you need to make one lantern:
1) A recycled glass jar (mix & match any jars - it will look amazing)
2) Steel wire (1 piece to make the lantern handle & 1 piece to make loop that goes around top of lantern – measure is needed)
3) Beach sand
4) One small candle or tea light
This is how you do it:
Place the wire around the glass jar and secure the two wire ends by twisting them around each other. Cut off excess wire.
Cut off your last piece of wire to the length you want your handle to be in. Shape it as shown on the picture and pull each end of your “handle” through the loops.
Your lantern is ready and you can now decorate it with ribbon or stickers or something else or you can leave it as it is. To avoid the candles to move around inside the lanterns it’s a good idea to put a little bit of sand at the bottom of the jars.
This little DIY wedding project becomes easier and easier the more lanterns you make.
I hope you enjoy making your lanterns.
