Mini Lanterns

Admittedly somewhere in Martha’s vast empire, but to my specifics:

Tea light
General wire
Glass jar
Rice (could use beans, rocks, sand, kitty litter but I do not recommend popcorn).

You also see a funnel, stick lighter and pair of scissors that I regularly abuse by making them do things like cut wire. Pliers are also good for this project to make sure the wire is tight around the jars. Your fingers will thank you.

This satisfies my current interest in the Amish, and feels somehow harvesty and good for Thanksgiving. The extent of my decoration for Thanksgiving is these rice-jar-candle-lanterns and a couple of whole pumpkins sitting around in the living room. They may end up as a pie or some kind of turnover if I ever get off it.
