Toronto bloggers Aubrey + Lindsay featured a round-up this past weekend of DIY Mason jar lanterns. Brilliant!

You can do the crafty work indoors, and then hang them along a fence or trees on the night of your party. Just remember to take them down before it rains.

What you’ll need: 2 standard lunch-sized paper lunch bags per broomstick, scissors, gold ribbon and candy or another treat filler Directions: Trim 2” off the top of the paper bags. Open the first bag, push out the base until it forms a squared-off triangle shape and fold in the left and right sides to flatten it out. Starting from the top, cut the flattened bag into thin strips, stopping short of the base (just above the bottom crease). Cut just the top of the second bag into thin strips, approximately 1.5” deep.
