Jingle Bell Mason Jar Christmas Lantern

I'm looking forward to the Christmas Holiday.



I'm starting to make my little Christmas crafts, and wanted to share my Christmas Lantern with you. It's real simple to make. You can use them as a decor item on your mantle, window, or front porch, or give them as a gift.

  • start with a simple mason jar
  • add silver  bells or pine cones




  • tie a little piece of silver ribbon, into a bow around the jar


  • add a couple jingle bells for embellishment
  • insert a tea light candle, you can use the little battery operated ones so you can put the lid back on the jar.

  • Tie a bit of wire around the top to create a handle by twisting the sides

  • Turn on your candle and put the lid on. (If using a real tea light candle, leave lid off)



The little tea light that I used actually have their own internal timer and they go on for 5 hours and off for 19 hrs. they vary colors, from white to red, to green to blue. I picked them up at Home Depot.


You can also just get them in just white, and set them all in a row. Hang them from a flower pot holder.

Or a little spot on your buffet.
And just sit back and watch it flicker.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and beautiful Holiday season.
