DIY lanterns are so magical and look amazing in spring and summer and the best part about this one is it's a mason jar lantern. I love how diverse the use for this can get from table centres to porch lighting or even gifts for mother's day.

These are so pretty and seem simple to make. I think they would be beautiful in the summer when it is getting darker to give some light! I also think they would be lovely on tables at a wedding as something different. I will be making these for our outside area!

cute idea. I have been doing this for the past 3 yrs. at my camp. Only thing different I did was I put red, white, blue sand in the bottom of jar and then put the candles in. When not in use I put the lid back on them and just leave them hang on the garden hooks.
