DIY Mason Jar Luminaries

My two best friends have come to visit yet again: burlap and lace!

A couple weeks ago, I bought two small shelves at an antique store and I’ve been looking for something to set on them. I’ve got an abundance of mason jars laying around and of course some leftover burlap and lace from my Lamps on a String. So, I put the three together and made these babies! These would be cute for an outdoor event like a wedding reception; they’re romantic yet rustic. Or, you could use them as decoration on a table or shelf- like me! And, let me add, they are so easy. They probably took me 30 minutes total.

Supplies Needed:
mason jar/jars- mine were $1 each from the Dollar Store
lace fabric
burlap
twine or any sort of ribbon
glue (I used Elmer’s Craft Bond Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive)
scissors
tea light/lights

Cut out lace to wrap around the base of your mason jar.
Spray one side of your jar and attach your lace. Keep spraying and attaching piece by piece until your ends of lace meet. Press down the edges to ensure they will lay down flat.
Now cut a strip of burlap the size of your rim. Spray your rim with glue and attach the burlap. I cut my burlap a little big and cut the extra off the top after I glued.
Tie your twine around the rim, and stick a tea light in! And viola! Your own mason jar luminaries.

  13. This is cool, My cousin made them for Christmas presents. I'm thinking of making them as a fundraiser for my Relay For Life team. And using the different color cancer ribbons as the ribbons.

  14. How does the glue hold up to the heat?

  15. Very cute! I haven't seen a burlap/lace mason jar quite like this before but I'm glad I stumbled across it. My Wedding Bag can also be an awesome resource if you're in the process of planning a wedding.

  16. Before doing these for my wedding, my qstn is this: How will the glue hold up to the heat of the candle, or the heat of a hot July day, for that matter?

  17. This are beautiful!!! So many different events these could be used for. I was thinking about the heat too, but then I just thought about the battery tea lights. I think that would solve the problem.
