How to Make Mason Jar Lanterns in 2 Steps – DIY Tutorial

Introduction:

One of the best ways to make a DIY Lantern is from a jar. Simply because it is the best way to attractively set up tea lights without looking at a glowing aluminum shell all the time. This lantern is intended to be used indoors. If you want it as a decoration outside, then it’s best to use stronger adhesive glue that is waterproof.  That way the lantern is a lot more durable to withstand the harsh winds and rain when placed outdoors.

Glue the Shapes to the Jar

After you’ve made tons of paper shapes, glue all the shapes onto the glass one after the other. I would recommend sticking the snippets very scattered manner on the mason jar. Try scattering and overlaying the shapes to make it a one-of-a-kind lantern design.

Step 3

Put the Tea Light Inside

Insert the tea light inside the jar.

If the jar you are using is too narrow to fit your hand, use a stick lighter to light up the tea light.
