Mason Jar Lights

I love Mason Jar projects so I rounded up a group of Mason Jar lights for you today. They are fun! And easy to make.

Winter Mason Jar Lanterns by The Thinking Closet

The Thinking Closet used a Mason Jar to create a Winter Lantern. I know that this word 'winter' is a bad one for some of you right now but you can think spring or summer and fix it up any way you like. But this is a wonderful idea for outdoors!

Creating a Life Now made a fun rustic outdoor chandelier using Mason Jars an old board and rope. Very creative indeed! Wouldn't this be great on your patio?

A lot of you have seen my Mason Jar Solar light but just in case you haven't, here it is with a print out of strawberries to add a fun touch. Read my post here to see how these solar lights could be used safely to line a walk way or decorate a table for a party or reception with personalized prints inside.

Be sure to check out the Pantry for more Mason Jar ideas.

I link at these parties.

  17. Oh, I love mason jars with sand and candles and I love the idea of making it into a light! I have GOT to get over my "fear" and intimidation of it and go for it. That would be so pretty!
