I personally own bunch of small jar-like candle holders that I’ve bought from IKEA at a dollar each. After seeing this eco DIY, I am having some regrets as I have many old jars laying around that I could have used to make this candle lantern that looks awfully awesome. Now, I wouldn’t hang it from anything but I can just let the candle jars sit on my dining table. It’d still look classy and nice.
During the summer I love to linger outside with friends as the day makes its slow fade into night. A bottle of wine, a few good nibbles, and flickering candlelight sets the mood for lots of gabbing and laughing. I have a big collection of votive holders leftover from our wedding, but I’ve been wanting to hang candle lanterns around our deck.
