I took another class at B Street Mercantile last week. My life has gotten so crazy that the only time I have to be creative is to take a class. We made lanterns in this class and I am already buzzing with ideas for future ones!
What You Need:
Mason jar with lid
Paint (gold leaf or glass paint or spray paint)
Nail and hammer
The instructor had already prepared the mason jars for us. She took off the lid and punched a hole on either side of the lid using a hammer and nail. She then strung wire through the lid rim and screwed it onto the jar.
I decided to use a gold leaf paint on my jar.
I used foam star stickers on my jar. In the future, I would not use foam. Because they are so fat and do not lay flat, it is easy to accidentally get paint under the edges. I wrapped painter's tape around the top of the jar so I could get a nice clean painted edge.
Drop in a tealight, candle, or battery-operated candle and you have an adorable lantern!
