Twine Wrapped Jar Lanterns Tutorial: Epiphany Crafts & The Twinery Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to day two of the Epiphany Crafts and The Twinery blog hop!  Raise your hand if you are crazy for mason jars?  Me!  Me!  I saw these little jars at the craft store and just had to have them.  I added a little twine and a charm and they quickly transitioned into personalized twine wrapped jar lanterns for my daughter and her friends.

The Epiphany Crafts square charms are double sided so I added each girl's initial to the back.

Add a little LED candle, turn out the lights and [they'll] glow. (sorry, I couldn't resist)

And here are the girls posing with their lanterns.  They were so excited to get dressed up and model for me.  :)

Remove the charm from the lantern, add a little extra twine and a clasp and you have a personalized necklace, too.

Twine Wrapped Jar Lanterns Tutorial

Wanna make your own twine wrapped lantern?  Here's how:

1. Holding twine with your thumb, wrap jar with twine several times (approx. 10 yards).  Pull the twine snugly as you go and you won't need any additional adhesive.

2. Finish with a square knot and trim excess.

TIP: If you don't have help with the knot, use a crochet hook to grab the thread while still holding the knot tightly. 

3. Add vase filler crystals and a battery operated tea light.
