Today I want to share a fun project I made for our Girls Night Out event at the shop Hip Chick Designs.

Step one ~ gather your supplies…
Mod Podge & foam brush
Wire – I used .20 gauge
Needle nose wire clippers
Decorative rocks or sand
Start with cutting a length of your wire. I used about 5’ of wire for each lantern
Then cut that 5’length into 4 pieces…3 at 12 inches and 1 at 24 inches. Use the 24 inch section to wrap around the neck of your jar. Wrap the wire just under the lip of your jar twice and lightly twist ends…
Remove this piece and attach each 12 inch piece like this…
Place it back on the neck of your jar and tighten by twisting ends, then clip off excess
Now cut your paper into 1/2 inch wide strips…and select some beads
Thread your beads onto the wires
Thread all 3 pieces thru a large bead then create your hanging loop at the top (sorry for the blurry i-phone photo on this step!)
Apply your paper strips with Mod Podge (note that I used double sided paper since you can see the pretty patterns thru the glass)
Fill bottom of your jar with some decorative rocks or sand, add a votive candle, and enjoy!
