How to: Frosted Glass Lantern [UpCycle Guzman’s Salsa Jars] #howto #craft #masonjars

I love Mason Jar crafts, but since building the Guzman’s Salsa website ….. well let’s just say I have plenty of salsa jars for crafts these days.

This is our Frosted Guzman’s Salsa Jar Lantern.

You will need:
Jar
Dot stickers
Rust-oleum Frosted Glass Semi-Transparent finish (spray can)
Wire
Fake Candle
And if you like some ribbon to make it pretty!

First, take the dot stickers and space them around the jar.

Next: Go . Out . Side! And spray the jar with the Rust-oleum Frosted Glass Semi-Transparent finish. I did 2 coats.

Carefully peal off the stickers.

Twist wire to create the hanger and wrap it around the jar once, over the top and back down. My wiring always looks good on 1 side and not the other, to fix that I use ribbon! lol

Drop in the fake candle, put on the lid and done!

The wire hanger for my lantern is very long because of where I hang it, but you can create a very short hanger also, it all depends on where it’s going to hang.
