Jar Lantern Project

For the first time this year we have been able enjoy sitting outside at night and not freeze our socks off.
And so, as we all recover from a weekend of late night BBQ's, we take with us a few lessons learnt.

A. Always have enough beer.
B. Burgers taste so much better from a BBQ.
C. Candles, candles, candles. Hanging candles everywhere.

To find out how to make the hanging jars in the photo below, check out TheBeatThatMyHeartSkipped
for a simple tutorial.

There's also a great step by step guide over at Make Projects showing you how to put together the jam jar lanterns in the photo below.

For an extra bit of colour, try staining the jars with a waterproof colour technique.
A tutorial can be found over at design folder.

So there you have the winning ingredients for any successful BBQ party.  Just learn your ABC.
You better act quick though because there's one thing we've already learnt and learnt the hard way.
Our summer won't last long.
