DIY personalised jam jar lanterns

There are a lot of clever people in the world, they take something makes me think “gosh, how did they do that?!” and shows me that it’s really rather simple.  These DIY personalised jam jar lanterns or vases are one of those things.  I’m sure you must have experienced that moment when you’ve found a great font that you want to use on something, but don’t know how to because you can’t print onto said item, such as a jam jar.

Personalised jam jar lanterns

Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day has shared a brilliant way to do this – by simply taping your printed off text inside the glass jar and then using an appropriate pen to trace over it.  Remove the taped paper from inside and voila!  Genius!  For full details on how to make these and the supplies you need, you’ll find it here on Project Wedding.
