My own Jar lantern

I used my Silhouette machine to cut out this design on vinyl. Then I placed the vinyl on my jar.

Dip the Jar in etching cream, I used etch bath dipping solution
you can buy it here: 

After I cleaned the solution off my jar I twisted some wire around it. I used a bronze color of wire that I picked up from Michael's. I used a pencil to twist the ends. Then I added gold rhinestones (these were also from Michael's in their dollar section). In the bottom of the jar I placed sand and pink marbles.

I have seen so many different versions of this jar, some people put glass beads around the wire, others paint on them. They're really cheap to make and so cute to display. They are also great as table toppers for outdoor dinners and parties.
