Breckenridge Wedding Planner: DIY Hanging Mason Jar Wedding Lanterns

Posted by on June 18th, 2015

Wedding lanterns bring glowing ambiance to your venue. What’s great about them is they are perfect for both indoor and outdoor weddings. Whether you hang them along the aisle, on the ceiling or make them your centerpiece, they have that charismatic effect the guests can’t resist. Today, we are going to make simple yet elegant mason jar lanterns that give a sophisticated vibe to your big day.

You Need:

1.  Mason jar

2.  Electrical wire

3.  Pliers

4.  Wire Cutter


First, grab about 13-inches of electrical wire. Using knife or cutter, slice the plastic coating to get the copper wire. Copper wire is one of the important materials for this project. You can also directly buy copper wire from the local store to save you from this task.

Now, you have a shining copper wire. Grab pliers and at one end of the copper wire, you will make a loop. Hold the one end and twist it around until it looks like a pea shape. Wrap the copper wire around the neck of the jar. Then, hold it halfway around and bend the wire. About 1/2 inch from the bend, cut the wire using wire cutter. This will give you enough space to twist the wire. Get the pliers and do on this other end what you did with the last one. Just make this one a little bigger and make the two loops face each other.

You are going to do the same with the other piece. Make one loop at other end. Give a little space as you will insert this loop with the other piece. Hook the two loops and use pliers to close back up around the loop. Again, measure the copper wire around the jar’s neck and cut the excess. Make another loop in another end. Hook it with the other piece. Secure the loops tightly so you still have your lantern in one piece at the end of the day.

Next, we will work on the handle. Get another 13-inch copper wire. Create a loop at other end but keep it open and hook it with the horizontal loop. Use pliers to close it. Pull the wire to straight it out before you bend it. Create loop at one end, hook it and secure it. Stretch the wire a bit to give it a nice curve for a perfect handle.

Colorado Wedding Planner: Veronica & Matthew

Posted by on June 9th, 2015

Veronica and Matthew were married Saint Mary’s Church in Silverthorne, Colorado. The ceremony went off without a hitch but getting from the church to Timber Ridge, that was a different story. The rain kept the guests from loading the gondola but as soon as Keystone cleared for everyone to get up the mountain, everything ran like clockwork. Sometimes rain make for the best photos, as you can see below. Thank you Marianne Brown Photography for these amazing photos!
