Hanging Mason Jar Lanterns with a Beach Theme

Shop Coastal Decor

I get the feeling that everyone loves mason jars. And they make the loveliest beach hanging lanterns!

Hanging Mason Jar Lanterns with wire closure were used to create simple beach hanging lanterns by filling up the jars with sand, then placing a tea light on top.

With a wire wrap and a little bit of creativity you can transform regular mason jars into charming Beach Lanterns.

And I think we're all familiar with Pottery Barn's mason jar lanterns, featured here. Follow the link to see jar lanterns with homemade twisted hangers!

Very cute! Haven't tried hanging them, but used to have these all over my beach house in Washington. Love the aqua mason jars the best, fill with collected seaglass, and seashells - only danger is forgetting to put the candle in a separate container inside the mason jar before lighting the candle. Had a little bit of a mess...

The last jars are absolutely gorgeous. I have to look into that color scheme. cheers

I have always loved the quaint, simple look of Mason jar lanterns, Maya! It's a project that anyone can do to make a big impact in their home or on their patio! :) The seaglass ones are especially pretty, aren't they?

These are so beautiful!! So simple and they say so much! We are thinking about doing these for my brothers wedding if we have the right trees to hang them on.

The addition of sea glass is so lovely. Imagine them candlelit too! ~Lili
