DIY Mason Jar Lanterns + Holiday Gift Idea!

I've been inspired to find some new ways to light my patio and apartment this winter.  I love DIY, crafty decor, so I've been making mason jar lanterns for the last couple of weeks!  I filmed a video about how I make them, as well as some fun holiday decor/gift ideas you can use them for, which will be at the bottom of this post.  I managed to capture some pretty beautiful photos of these lanterns in the process of making the video, so I thought I would share them in a photoblog post! :)  

This first one is my favorite... the beach/sunset/sky/everything was perfect for filming that night.

In the video tutorial I used pint sized jars, but I also made a few half-pint sized baby lanterns, like this one below.  Isn't it cute with it's little polka dot bow?

I got my hands on some holiday craft supplies, and am so happy with how all of these turned out.  It was one of those projects where each step inspired me with another idea of something I could do with these jars.  It was so much fun.

Be sure to check out the video!  It's probably one of my favorites I've ever done! :)
