While visiting San Diego this past weekend, we spent some time with some really good friends of ours. They had just finished their deck in their backyard and she was looking for some lighting ideas. Since I am vicariously living through them with their awesome backyard, we decided to do some Mason Jars candle lighting.
Elyse bought the Mason Jars at Albertson's, the wire and rope at Home Depot, and the Sand at Michael's.
We then filled the Mason Jars with purple sand and put a candle inside.
Next, we wrapped wire around the top of the jar and twisted more wire to make a handle-type shape.
Then we cut the rope to her liking and hung each Mason Jar on a different branch...
I couldn't stay until it got dark but I imagine that they looked beautiful, adding some light and a lot of character.
Thanks Elyse for letting me be a part of decorating your beautiful backyard!
