Centierpiece Lights: Mason Jars meet Lanterns

Centierpiece Lights: Mason Jars meet Lanterns

 

We love this project that combines two of our favorite centerpiece and tablescape containers:  mason jars and lanterns!

The different colored mason jars make it super easy to change the look of the lantern.  Pick up a wedding or prom theme accent color and fill with a set of white battery lights.  We love the ease of working with the micro drop or fairy style of lights with their super-thin wiring.

Just don’t tighten the lids down too tightly.  Tuck the battery box under the lantern or under the jar.

Here are a few of the combinations you might be tempted to try.

Be sure to share your projects on Instagram. #christmaslightsource

Materials

  • Different sized jars in various colors – we used short smooth jars here but traditional canning jars work great as well
  • Lanterns – we love this white filigree lantern from IKEA
  • Battery lights – we use white for these photos but warm yellow, red and blue are great choices as well
