Jessica of Wednesday Inc shows us how to make those gorgeous twine chandeliers from the inspiration shoot she shared with us this morning. Using balloons, glue and twine, you can also make these lanterns for your wedding – and then bring it home and use it as your very own mid century lampshade. What you will need are: balloons, glue, yarn, tray for glue, corn starch 1/2 cup of Corn starch, 1/4 cup of Warm water, clear fast drying spray paint, hanging lamp cord or fishing line (depending on your desired final product), and a lighting kit if you’re looking for a fully functional lantern. Jessica recommends using a sharpie to mark on the inflated balloon how much room you need to leave for the lighting cord.

We made sun jars using these instructions by Cre8tor at Instructables: Home-made Sun Jar . It’s based on the Sun Jar design by Tobias Wong. These notes are what we learned along the way. The short version: – Ikea Slom jar , smallest size, about $3 – single Malibu brand solar garden light, about $10, from Lowes (see notes below for pictures of the specific one as there are a few variables) update: In the years since I wrote this tutorial it’s become easier to find individual garden lights that pop off their ground stake and are small enough to fit inside the lid of a jar.
