mason jar lanterns

I love all of the mason jar lanterns I see on pinterest. I think they look really nice in a backyard space or lining a pathway. Since I keep all of the mason jars from pasta sauce, I had a whole bag ready to be used. I pick up some silver 14 gauge wire from Joann's and was able to find a great deal on 5 small, black shepards hooks there too. They were on clearance for about $0.70 each. I pulled up a tutorial on youtube and was able to get the lanterns made in less than an hour. With some white rice as filler and LED candles from Target, the mason jar lanterns were ready to be displayed! This ended up costing about $3 per lantern with 4 total. Definitely cheaper than the store bought ones.
