One of the most romantic touches to an outdoor wedding is hanging candles. Candle accents done right adds just that special touch to set a mood. You can purchase some beautiful ones online or in stores but that can make for a huge expense. If you budget is tight, sometimes that project just is another idea gone undone.
Here’s a quick and easy DIY project that’s low cost and easy to do! (My kind of project!)
Take mason jars or empty glasses and stretch rubber bands around various points. Use all kinds of rubber bands – thick, thin,etc. Then spray the bottles or jar with white primer. Let it dry thoroughly and then remove the rubber bands. Go to the Dollar Store and purchase low cost candles and add to the inside of your mason jars. Using twine, wire or jute to create a handle by which you can hang your lights. If you are able to secure “fancy” mason jars, you can even do away with the paint. Hang lots of them at various heights for maximum effect.
Other items include adding a base of sand or colored stone to the bottom of your jar.
While many of you are “at home” this might just be a fun project.
