Mason Jar Lanterns

I'm so excited to share a different kind of recipe with y'all here on The Country Cook. From time to time I like to share some fun tips or tricks that I just love and really want to share. Some of you who have been with me a while might remember my Mom's recipe for Homemade Window Cleaner or the Homemade Carpet Cleaner. I use the Ball Mason Jars to store my carpet cleaner in too. And my sweet tea just doesn't taste as sweet unless I'm drinking it out of a mason jar. Well today, I am sharing a really easy and quick tutorial on how to make Mason Jar Lanterns. I love, love, love Ball® Mason Jars. Love them. I love to can and preserve fruits and vegetables (my favorite are jams and jellies). But I also love to decorate with them. It is such an inexpensive and quick way to decorate.  And they just look and feel so homey and comforting!
In the spring and summer, I especially love to make Mason Jar Lanterns. It literally takes me no more than about 20 minutes from start to finish to make a few. I normally make them with the clear Ball mason jars.  BUT...Ball® has come out with a limited edition Vintage Style Blue Jar!Oh. My. Word. These jars are gorgeous! Yes, I'm gushing over mason jars. They are part of Ball's Heritage Collection. I have a few vintage ones that I have collected that I use to decorate in my kitchen. So when I saw these, I was hooked. It was love at first sight.
But after I got them, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them yet. It was only March and I wasn't ready to can anything. And then I remembered the lanterns. And then my friend Tabitha from Meet Penny reminded me that World Autism Awareness Day was coming up on April 2nd.  And April is also Autism Awareness Month. Tabitha's eldest daughter was diagnosed with Autism several years ago. And on Autism Awareness Day, we celebrate all those who have been diagnosed with Autism and their families by wearing blue and lighting it up blue at our homes and churches and schools.  My mind was set and I can't tell you how pleased I was with how these turned out. The blue jars made these lanterns even more gorgeous than usual. So go on and get yourself some of these jars and light it up blue!
Here's what you'll need:
Ball® Mason Jars 
Decorative glass pebbles
Tealight candles
22 Gauge wire (if making hanging lanterns)
Needle nose pliers (if making hanging lanterns)

How to put them together:
 Wrap a small section of wire around the rim of the jar.
You want to wrap the wire under the lip of the rim so it doesn't slip up and off.
22 Gauge wire is very easy to cut and bend. So if you don't have pliers, just use some sharp scissors and bend the wire with your fingers (just be careful!)

Make a loop on one end of the wire.
Then slide the other end of the wire through the loop to close the circle.
Tighten the wire snuggly around the jar, keeping the wire under the rim.
 
Make sure you wrap the wire around itself tightly.
The wire is shown a bit loose here in the photo so you can see the wire more easily.
But you want to make sure the wire is snug under the lip of the jar so it doesn't
 slide off when hanging.
Get another piece of wire (about 12 inches long) to make the handle. Take one end of the handle and loop it through one side of the wire that is going around the rim. And then repeat on the other side of the jar. Make sure to tighten and wrap it securely so it doesn't slip around the jar or fall off.
Once all your wiring is secure, you are ready to fill your jars and hang!
Fill each jar with a small handful of the decorative glass pebbles in the bottom, then place a tealight right into the center of the pebbles.  I like to hang them up first, then light them.
If you don't want to hang them, you can just set them out on your picnic table or porch.
They look gorgeous lined up on steps. Wherever you want a soft glow of light outside.
I think these would make a beautiful, yet inexpensive, do-it-yourself decoration for a country style wedding or reception or any outdoor celebration!
Enjoy!

I would gift the jars to my great nephew...he's gonna need them for his wedding. He proposed to his fiancée at a far away old homestead underneath her favorite tree. He had tea-lights in Ball Mason jars hanging from the branches of the tree...along with pictures of the sweet couple throughout their relationship. What a guy!! First he had to clear out all the underbrush and growth from around the tree...decorated the tree...and then he invited family and friends to witness the proposal. Like I said...what a guy!!! They are to be married at the same spot and I feel sure they could use more Ball Mason jars. I have liked, Pinned, and followed. Thanks.

Love the blue canning jars. So many possibilities from displaying to canning and such a pretty blue candle holders for 4th of July celebrations coming up. Also want you to know I made your strawberry cake this past weekend. It is all gone. Need I say more?

Never seen the blue jars before! How neat! It was so time-appropriate that I saw this giveaway on your blog (follow you on my RSS feed) because I've seen so many great recipes for healthy foods made in a mason jar (overnight oats, etc) BUT I don't have any mason jars! Would love to win these! I would probaby use them for assorted purposes (food and decorating). :) Thanks for the giveaway!

Jordan Bolin said...

I would a. use them in my upcoming wedding as hanging lanterns on the pergola we're getting married under, then b. use them to either decorate our house post wedding or can in them.

I have only used these jars for drinking sweet tea and lemonade. It’s a Southern thang; I’m sure you understand :- )
But I am so excited to find many new uses for them! I now follow Ball Canning on Facebook and Pinterest. I also, PIN this to my “Arts and Craft” board.
I want to use these jars to make the jar lanterns for my outside patio. We spend a lot of time outside; grilling, playing with the kids and relaxing. These would make the summer nights even better. Especially once I put the tea-lights with citronella in the jars to help keep the mosquitos away!

I would use these jars to decorate the tables for my son's graduation party. His hockey team colors are blue and yellow/gold and that is the theme we are going with for his party. These would be so much fun to add the perfect touch of color to the yellow/gold table cloths. He also told me last night that he wants sweet tea for his party and I told him that i know where i can get a recipe (from your website) for sweet tea! It's all coming together!

Margaret Whiting said...

Since my Boyfriend's daughter is getting married this July and it's going to be a "country fair" wedding. I think these would come in handy as candles hanging in my row of old oak trees and one as the "best wishes" jar. This jar is going to sit next to the sign in table. As people sign in they will take a moment and write a little "Good wishes/happy thoughts on a strip of paper & drop into the jar. On their one year Anniversary they open the jar and read them to each other as they eat their one year old wedding cake! (that I am also making) Her wedding will be Red white & blue so these will be PERFECT!

Thank u for bringing these beautiful jars to our attention! I would either do as u suggested w/ the candles or even small light sets to look like fireflies out on the patio.

I really like these blue jars and I would decorate with them. Blue and green are the colors for Donate Life and the awareness month is also April. I hope everyone who reads this has or will sign their organ donor card. My husband received a life saving lung transplant 7+ years ago because of some thoughtful person/family!!

I love the BLUE mason jars. I am going to decorate with them. Use this whole candle idea for all our cookouts this summer. Especially my daughter's birthday.
I am going to make one for my mom too as she is in the hospital but, I will add one of those battery tealights as it's a hospital atleast til she gets out. :)
I am also going to use one for my sugar like a sugar jar. I think it's pretty and what a beautiful way to store my sugar a pretty sugar jar. :)
I think I will make gifts in them too. I mean for like Christmas making homemade brownies or cookie mix in a jar but, it's such a pretty jar doesn't need the outside decorated and then tell the person how to transform it into a lovely decoration for their table after the mix is used. :) So many ideas....

Thanks for allowing me to share. :)
Oh a inexpensive Birthday present I can make for myself. :) SWEET!

I already use old blue jars for storage and have them in an old cupboard displaying my dried foods! I also store dried herbs, and even marbles in them! I love them for vases, I drink out of them! I also actually use them to can my home grown veggies and jellies and jams! So....I guess you could say I just LOVE these jars and will continue to use them in all sorts of ways!!
