Making these Whimsical DIY Luminaries was so simple. I had 2 of them put together in less than an hour.

Start with a clean mason jar with a smooth finish. Starting from the bottom glue a row of glass stones all the way around.

When starting the next row, and all others after the first one, you want to stagger the glass stones between 2 from the previous row as shown in the picture below. This will just make the application of the beads go on smooth and they will fit much nicer when they are nestled between 2 others.

Continue adding the stones one row at a time, until your entire mason jar is covered. Insert an electric candle or a few glow sticks (these are so easy to find this time of year, and come in so many different colors now. The only downside is they don’t last as long as I would like them to.)

That is all there is to it. I told you they were simple! The glass stones come in ever color imaginable, so you can customize these great luminaries to match any decor.

You can add this effect to any glass jar too! Just make sure the glass is clean, and free of any labels. Check out my post on How to Remove Labels From Glass Bottles Easily!
