Fairy Jar Lanterns - group 1

I'm finally getting around to sharing the fairy jars / lanterns I made last month. There are 6 more to share, divided up in the next two days posts.

Reusing candle jars and a pickle jar, covered with wrinkled tissue paper and Mod Podge.
I added felt to the bottoms of them on the outside to protect surfaces they sit on.
Various goodies from my craft supply stash to embellish them, including old book pages.
Battery operated tea light candles - DO NOT USE REAL CANDLES !

Because I am repurposing several items on these jars, I am entering (the top one using the book pages) into the current challenge at Shopping Our Stash - Upcycle

Thanks for looking =)

I'm not sure what this flowering plant is,
but the butterflies are loving it !
There are nine of them in this photo.

EDITED TO ADD 9/24/2018

I entered a couple of items in the challenge - and the fairy jar made with old book pages was a Top 3 Pick ! Thanks, ladies !


  1. Oh my gosh!! this lanterns are gorgeous!!! what a fabulous way to recycle these jars. The tissue paper on the inside gives them a soft and beautiful glow when you light them up.
