"Let Your Light Shine" Lanterns









Center one piece of wire on each side of the jar just under the grooves. 
Twist the wire pieces securely together on each side.


Embellish with ribbons and fabric ties, if desired.
Add a tea light and you're good to go!

  1. These are really neat! I'm wondering if you might be able to use a plastic container? I have a troop of Daisy scouts and it would be neat for them to make this, but because of there age, I don't know if glass would be a good choice.

  2. Plastic's not any use with candles! Melt!

  3. These are really cute, thanks so much for posting them! Facebook is notorious for not notifying page owners when I feature them, so I thought I would stop by myself and let you know :) https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10153775790395217&set=a.353593675216.349539.323548680216&type=1&stream_ref=10

    2. 18 Guage - Galvanized Steel Wire from Lowe's. Way cheaper than actual craft wire.
