my DIY wedding: baby food jar lanterns

I am fortunate to have some creative and helpful friends. Last week, several of my girls came over and helped me with some wedding projects. I may have been a bit aggressive with all of the DIY projects that I committed to for this wedding, but when I have a project stuck in my head; it’s really hard to let it go, so I was lucky that I was able to enlist the help of my girls. And, all I had to do was provide wine and pizza. Score!

With the help of my very best friend, Amy, and her little man, Jace, I’ve been collecting baby food jars for several months now. Making them into lanterns couldn’t be easier. Simply wrap the lip of the jar with thin wire of different lengths (so they can hang from different parts of the tree) and drop a tea-light candle in each one. Done. It’s a fantastic way to recycle and add some sparkle to your backyard, deck, party, or in my case,  wedding reception!
