Four reasons I am in love with mason jar oil lamp:
- So easy yet so pretty, takes only 2 minutes to make using vegetable oils and water!
- Even safer than candles: if it’s knocked over, the flame would be immediately extinguished by the oil and water. Still, please follow basic safety steps and don’t leave the lamp unattended!
- Bright and long lasting: 1 tablespoon of oil can last 2 hours!
- Mysterious and magical: thousands of years of history, remember someone named Aladdin rubbed an oil lamp, and a genie appeared? =)
In a more practical sense, these oil lamps are the perfect last minute decorations for dinner parties and festive gatherings!
Now are you ready for the magic carpet ride?
(Update: we made a new set of mason jar oil lanterns this year. Check them out plus lots of helpful tips at the end ! )
