Simple Wooden Jar Lantern

Pin It 

Here is the finished lantern with base (the orange color is still drying so it still looks a bit blotchy)

I saved an empty glass jar (Yay for repurposing)
I cut these thin 2" strips into a base for the jar...er, lantern. 
I just set the lantern on the wood, marked the size I needed. 

I drilled holes and stained the wood
And grabbed the twine and started sewing the wood together like cloth

Added red and yellow food color to Mod Podge
Coated the modge pod color to the lantern

I took this picture of a smaller jar while the lantern was drying
