Mason Jar Oil lamps???

Hi. Has anyone ever seen those oil lamps made from a mason jar? I'm looking for directions on how to make one. I've seen them at craft shows, sometimes they have pretty potpourri in the oil and then a wick at the top to burn. I don't remember if they have a shade or not, I don't think they do. I'm actually looking for the directions for my Mom. She wants to make one for her boss and maybe if it comes out neat I might make one too. Anyone know of a website with directions? I'd really appreciate it.

Thanks.

Stacy Bates

mason jar oil lamps

hi,
you can order the lids on line at CandleSupply.com. they are about $3.00 a piece. i made them this year for christmas presents. my only suggestion is to hot glue the glass tube to the lid. mine kept lifting up from the potpouri and beaded fruit that i filled them with.

sorry, i forgot to add all you do is add whatever you want to use as decoration inside then fill the jar with clear lamp oil.

A friend made one for me and gave it to me for christmas. I love it. She filled it with mixed nuts (in shell), colored gumdrops and small red and white candy canes. It is so cool. She was not sure how the "real" food items would hold up and gave me a bag of potpourri as back up to fill the jar with in case the perishable items didn't fair so well. She just poked a hole in the top and fed the wick through...but I did experience some leakage and am thinking that she should have put some sort of item for the wick to have "fed" through. What do you think?

the lids that i bought did have a little glass tube that you slid the wick through. the only problem that i encountered was that the items that i filled it with seemed to push it back up through the hole. i finally ended up hot gluing the tube to the lid and that solved the problem.

as far as i know you can fill them with just about anything, some items however may slightly color the oil. one i did with beaded fruit turned a shade of sage green, but it actually looked pretty.

the company that i ordered from was very fast also.

Mason Jars

What kind of oil do they take? Also, has anyone seen the lamp shades that are wire frames and covered in fabric. The ones I saw looked very victorian. I'ld like to find the frames for them. Does anyone know where they might be found?

Thank you!

Thanks for all the information. I jotted it all down for next Christmas. My Mom ended up just buying one for her boss instead of making one. But she found a store near by that sells the lids so I am planning to make some for Christmas 2003. I already have my ideas written down. Nothing wrong with getting a head start. I will check out that website for the lids though. It's easier than traveling the county for them!

Anyway. Thanks again.

I will admit that I am more than confused on what it is supposed to look like. I love making gifts that are presented in 'Mason' or 'Canning Jars', but I just don't get exactly how this item is made, or how it is supposed to look like when done. Would love to though as it may be something I would be interested in making next Christmas.
