How to make a cut-out star jam jar lantern:

        • Measure and cut a strip of paper to fit inside your jam jar (leave a little extra to overlap)
        • Use your star shaped paper punch to make cut-out stars at regular intervals along the edge of the paper strip.  For a taller jar, you could make another row of cut-out stars along the opposite edge too.  Keep your cut out stars for confetti to scatter on tables, or add to party invitations.
        • Add a flameless candle to the jar and repeat until you have a good collection of flickering beauties.

We mixed ours with some paper doily lined jam jars and mod-podge glittter jam jar lanterns too.

    These looks so pretty when they are all lit up and twinkling! I’m such a big fan of reusing jam jars so will give this a whirl! Hope you have a lovely Christmas x
