We decided that we wanted to eat a fancy dinner outside one night this summer and so we decided to make some outside lighting to go with it. We started out with some quart canning jars, added some sand and a candle. I added a wire handle and some cord for decoration.
James decided to add some finds from the beach in his and he glued some shells on the outside as well.
My sister-in-law, Brenda made us this outside light by painting a jar with glitter glue and adding some river stones in addition to a candle inside. This traveled really well, as we just put the top back on it and packed it each time we needed to go. In this way, we could take it to each campsite we went to.
As it turns out, it was too hot to eat outside this summer, so we used them to decorate the table inside and had a beautiful candlelight dinner one night.
