Pattern Description:

Spooky! Jazz up and upcycle a jar to create the best dressed lanterns and candle lights around!

I was inspired to design these when thinking of a way to add some atmosphere to my patio this year. I love the solar mason jar lanterns, but though how nice it would be to add vibrant colors and patterns to jazz them up a bit. So, I had the idea to create them to mimic the fishing net weights you see around for decor.

Then I tested them out in the darkness of my bathroom and realized how fabulous and relaxing these are for the bath tub area, co-ordinated with the bathroom decor.

There are so many uses for these. Add them to your preserve jars, for a special finish to your table presentation.

These are fantastic stash busters and gifts. You also don't need to buy mason jars specially for these, just recycle a 1 pint / 454 - 500 ml jam jar get some spare yarn (these in the photos are made with cotton yarn,) and get knitting!

My favorite presentation?
Take a jam jar / mason jar, add a few colored glass stones in the bottom, add water half way and pop in a floating candle, et voila! A simple, pretty way to create a lovely atmosphere, with dancing light and shadow patterns for a bathroom soak, patio, sun room, outdoor gathering, dinner party or home.
