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.
mason jar/jars- mine were $1 each from the Dollar Store
twine or any sort of ribbon
glue (I used Elmer’s Craft Bond Multi-Purpose Spray Adhesive)
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.
