Lace Mason Jar Luminaries

These lace Mason Jar luminaries were made with repurposed lace doilies, ribbon, twine, buttons and burlap.  Who would have thought that these simple glass canning jars invented and patented by John Landis Mason almost two hundred years ago would be so prized by crafty brides everywhere. Amanda Formaro created these Mason jar luminaries with doilies she bought at a thrift store for 35 cents each. She tried using paper doilies but they just couldn't compete with the elegant motifs of openwork crocheted doilies made of cotton or linen thread - perfect for a vintage themed wedding.
