Mason Jar Lanterns, Vases and Whatever You Can Think Of

We are still vacationing in South Carolina and having a wonderful time.  This project is nothing new, but rather a reminder of what beautiful things can be done with a simple jar.  I recently picked up three boxes of Mason jars at a Girl Scout sale.  I took 18-gauge wire and looped it around the jar tops and screwed the lid on without the sealed middle section.

They are so inviting just hanging on the side of my trellis with fresh flowers in them.

 They really added a little color coming up the walkway.
 I hung them on the patio with tea light candles in them.  They gave off a lovely evening glow.
 Sometimes the simplest things are the best.  Thanks for visiting.  We will be returning home on Saturday, tired and weary, but extremely happy from our wonderful adventures in the south.  What a beautiful part of our country!

You do know Maggie, I tend to love everything you do. Taking the ordinary and making it pretty and useful is inspiring. I have mason jars, and soon flowers!
