A beautiful way to use torn or stain doilies that may otherwise be destined for the dump.

Last year I decided to join in the spirit of International Yarn Bombing Day by creating some lanterns for our front porch with mason jars and crochet doilies. It's not exactly *yarn* bombing, but the whole point of yarn bombing is to draw attention to knitting and crocheting as an art while making the outdoors pretty, right? Well these lanterns fit that bill perfectly. They are quick and easy to make, too.



  1. 1

    If you are making your own doilies, make sure they are sized to fit the mason jars. If you are using "rescued" doilies, you may need to cut them to fit. Don't worry about them unraveling--the Mod Podge will hold them together.

  2. 2

    Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the mason jar with the foam brush. Hold the jar by the threaded rim to keep from getting Mod Podge all over your fingers.

  3. Step 3 3

    Carefully position the doily on the mason jar and press into place. Apply a second coat of Mod Podge on top of the doily, using a dabbing motion so as not to move the doily.

  4. 4

    Allow to dry overnight.

  5. Step 5 5

    Once dry, arrange the mason jars on an outdoor shelf or table. String the holiday lights just above them, and direct the icicles to fall into the mason jars.
