This month we’re doing crafts with household items. In my case I have chosen jars.
What I used for this project:
The How – To
Once you have pulled the wire so that the wire circle is tightly fitted on the outer rim, take your pliers and pull the free end of the wire in the opposite direction. You can then form another circle around the outer rim.
Once you have completed the second circle, pass the free end of the wire through the loop. Pull it upwards to create a handle that will come back down on the other side of the jar rim.
The free wire end will be looped downwards and secured on the opposite end of the jar rim. Make a final hook to secure it onto the wires and you are done.
And these are my two lanterns. I did not worry so much about the wire looking perfect. Because as you all know by now “Perfection is Overrated!”
I had also made another lantern with tea lights which had quite a different look.
I think these soft pebbles look great next to the driftwood. Another option would be to use sand for the bottom layer.
