    DIY Jar Lanterns Start with a few jars, candles, wire (I used 19 guage) and wire cutters/pliars. With the lid on the jar, wrap a wire around the neck of the jar below the lid and loosely twist it in place. Now take another piece around 20 inches long (or however long you want the handle of your jar) and attach either end to the first wire. Tighten the first wire to hold the handle wire in place. If you want your candles to stick in the jars, you'll need to stick them down with some hot wax or that special stuff they sell to affix candles in place. Remember, if these are going to hang above someone, you don't want the bottoms to look ugly though so be mindful of how you attach them. You can hang them from a wire stretched between two trees or just use your imagination. decorate the jars a little with some ribbon or twine or something. The possibilities are really endless. I'm thinking of using colored sand and glass beads mixed together to hold the candles in place. Or maybe colored sand and shells. I'm also thinking of maybe trying to wrap a stencil of some sort (lace or floral design) around the jars and spraying the jars with a light dusting of white paint. Maybe giving them a frosted look?

    I'd love to have an outdoor wedding. early in the year once it starts warming up a little bit. I think these mason jar lanterns along with white paper lanterns would make it dreamy.

A comment on this website about this tutorial was…”I made these for a wedding this weekend, we put a little moss in the bottom with a tealight and hung them on rusty shepard hooks down the aisle way. It was the perfect touch to the vintage feel of the wedding!” These could be really fun.

these would be beautiful for an outdoor wedding in the summer or to light the way to winter wedding reception

DIY Moroccan lantern. Doubles as table numbers (and triples as vases!) #weddings #diy

How about some type of hanging candles in the trees around the reception area? This could work well and have citronella candles keep mosquitoes away! You could hang it from the railing tree branches or lattice.
