I bought three thinking that was a good, odd number. Isn't that one of those rules in decorating? One of those that I don't follow if I feel like using an even number?
I already had an idea of what to hang from them. These mason jars with the hanging wire came in a 3 pack from Ross. I just put a little white sand in the bottom, some shells and a votive candle. Not too original but it's a classic. That's why we all make these, right?
They sell mason jars, sand and shells at Dollar Tree too if you don't already have them. You could use twine or rope instead of the wire.
They look cute on my front walkway but will look even better after the sun goes down and they are lit.
I also tried a little glass jar I found at Ross and used some colored stones for a different look. I happen to have 3 of these too. I guess I'm a believer of that odd number rule!
If you follow this blog, you know one of my favorite tips is to always think at least one season or holiday ahead of time. We all know how the stores rush the seasons but if you wait too long the good stuff will be gone! Just buy ahead of time and pray you remember where you put things!
Taking my own advice, I picked up 3 of these lanterns while I was at Dollar Tree. Perfect for the upcoming Memorial Day, Flag Day and of course, 4th of July. They light up too (batteries not included).
They are very fragile so you have to handle them with care. I guess that's what you get for $1.
The possibilities are endless with these little hooks. You could even hang a string of lights from them if you are near an electrical outlet. Pretty much just stick them in the ground and hang something from them. What else could I hang from them? Do you think they are really made for hanging a wreath at a grave? I would love to hear your ideas so just leave me a comment.
