Spring sprang and summer is on the way which means warmer weather and more time outdoors…whether playing, celebrating or entertaining. This little recycled mason jar acts as a great fairy lantern that can be used as a candle jar, party decoration or a jar to be filled with goodies for favors.
To make it you will need assorted Laura Kelly buttons, wire that it easily bendable (I used electrical fence wire from the garage) and feeds through the button holes and pieces of ribbon (5 inches long) and a mason jar without the lid.
To make it simply feed the wire through the buttons twisting and turning to create bright and colorful design then tie the ribbon pieces in knots along the wire. Twist the wire to go around the top of the jar then use the remaining length to create a handle, twisting the wire through the piece that went around it to secure.
It is simple, fun and easy and makes for a great quick project that you can complete in around fifteen minutes! It is one of those creations that has lots of great uses and ways to spread bright joy and light.
