Mason Jar Lanterns... Revisiting.. *Seasonal Inspirations*

Top of the morning to you friends..
Who else has the worst spring fever ever..?
I DO.. I DO!!!
I have been revising some of my spring/summer projects from last year as I craft up some
fun new ones to share with you.. Lots in the works.. Hope you stay tuned.. These mason
jar lanterns (I still have them just waiting to go out on the deck) are one of my
FAVORITE things I have crafted up ever... I loved the simplicity, yet very stylish
chic look, and totally enjoy having them out especially for dinner during the
spring summer months. Gives our table an added extra pretty touch!
Spring / Summer Patio Decor
Beach Themed Mason Jar
 ....Lantern Tutorial!!

I was happily featured for
them at ItsSoVeryCheri
.....................................................
I LOVE summer nights by the fire pit out back or simply just having dinner 
outside with the family on the patio. I thought of a way to bring my favorite 
summer getaway "THE BEACH" to the mix and decided to create these
romantic summer evening mason jar beach theme lanterns. They
are so dreamy and turned out perfect!

I even realized, maybe when not on the deck outside or hanging in the tree in the back
yard, these actually make for great accent decor in and around the house..

Hope you enjoy my tutorial... Lets Jump in...
Artsy Items Needed
Mason Jars (any size of your choice)
Spray Paint (I used Krylon Make It Stone Textured Paint)
Flowers
Craft Starfish
Wire
Wire Cutter
Glue gun w/ glue of course ;))
(Please excuse the red rope, I meant to use 
it but didn't like the look in the end)
Ready...?
To begin, I simply spray painted my jars with the spray paint I purchased. I wanted the jars
 to look stained with sand so this paint is actually absolutely perfect to give you that
wet stained sand look. I coated the jars twice very lightly to get the look as
pictured. One time was actually enough, so use your own discretion to
get the look you want for the jars.
Once the jars where dried, I took some gold wire and wrapped it around the
openings a few times around. I cut the wire and weaved the end a few
times around until securely in place.
I then made a handle for the jars to hang. To do so, I simply measured the wire
across leaving enough room to cross over. I looped and weaved it around both sides
to securely & tightly hold the jar up. (Lift it up afterwards close to a
tabletop to ensure that it'll hold up steadfast when you hang it up later)
Once the loops for hanging where securely in place, I wanted to spruce up the jars
and make them look more beach like. I decided to add on some off white
coral flowers and some craft starfish to the jars.
To do so, I simply found an angle and glued the flowers
and starfish to the jars. Tadaaaaaa...All Done!!!
Photobucket
These jar lanterns where so simple and fun to craft up. They can be used as
lanterns for your patio, or even simple and pretty decor for around your home.

I really hope you enjoyed my tutorial & find a moment
to add a lil jazz of fun to your warm mid-summer nights ahead..

THANKS SO VERY MUCH AGAIN FOR BEING HERE..
Stay Artsy....

FUN FOTO TIPS (Source)
Each time you spot a subject, snap a shot and then move in closer for a better shot. 
Having your subject almost fill the frame helps your viewer understand and appreciate 
your photo. Also, details are often more interesting than an overall view. Keep moving in 
closer until you are sure the photo will successfully represent your subject.
