Easy 4th of July Mason Jar Luminaries

Mason jars have such a simple, clean, classic look.  They are so easy to turn into about a million different crafty things, my favorite of which usually includes home decor.  Last week I was cruising the craft store aisles and happened upon some great patriotic themed ribbon.  I immediately loved the look of the ribbon and then saw that it was all 50% off.  Needless to say, several rolls of ribbon came home with me and here is the first project I used them for!

4. Place a tea light candle in each jar.  So pretty!  (I usually only turn on the candles at night so I don’t waste the batteries when the sun is up.)

Turn the lights down!  Even prettier!  I like to put these in our window in the kitchen.  They look beautiful when the sun shines through them and then at night the candles flicker like real flames.
