I feel like I’m constantly on the lookout for ways to reuse mason jars! They’re incredible for pickling, storage, mixing salad dressings, and I’ve even been known to use them in various crafts…or even to hold craft supplies in my playroom! Mason Jars are like the Windex of the vessel world. LOL. But how about using Mason Jars as an inexpensive and charming way to create decor for your home that can spruce up your table in a pinch?! I’m so excited today to introduce you to these fun Mason Jar Oil Lamps! These oil lamps are ridiculously easy to make, and they’re so versatile: there are so many different ways you can make them!
I love making these oil lamps as a tabletop decor piece for casual dinner parties or lunches when I’m entertaining. It’s a really nice way to play into a theme, too. Since there has been so much beautiful citrus on the grocery store shelves recently, I decided to use oranges and their greenery to create these oil lamps! I love that they give a bright, Spring-like pop of color to this pretty table. It would be perfect if you’re hosting brunch or lunch! Follow the steps below to make these as is, or experiment with lemons, greenery, or flowers in the jars to mix things up a bit.
Fill Mason Jar
Fill your Mason Jar with oranges and greenery.
Add water, oil and wick
Add water first to the Mason Jar and top with 1/2″ of vegetable oil. Place the wick on top and light!
