D.I.Y. Shabby-Chic Lace-Covered Mason Jar Lanterns

WOW, that title is a mouthful. I have changed these poor things a million times over, but I think I am FINALLY happy.

Step One: Lace-Covered Mason Jar Tutorial
Step Two: Tutorial on hanging the jars
Step Three:

Twine: CraftDesigner (Jute)
Glue: QuickHold Contact Adhesive (Craft)

Apologies on the photo quality
1. Start the twine at the back of your jar. Wrap the twine over the beginning portion of your twine to anchor it in place. Some tutorials say to glue the twine in place when you begin-it's not necessary.

2. Continue to wrap the twine around the outside of the jar until you reach your desired thickness.

3. Glue the last strip of twine in the back.

4. Add a ribbon.

These are really stunning! I love the look of the lace on the jars with the jute and love that they could be made without having to spend a whole lot of money. I just finished a frugal crafts round-up and couldn't resist featuring your pretty covered jars. Here is the link:

Thank you so much for sharing :)
