After you've assembled several jars, hang them in a convenient spot and color them with glass stain. You can paint each jar all one shade, or make it fancy with leading and any decorative design of your choosing. Just follow manufacturer's instructions.
When glass stain has thoroughly dried, add about two inches of sand to each jar, and insert candles.
It's Party Time!
You've hung your jars in their final party location. The sun has finally set! So strike a match, turn 'em on, and bask in glow of your festive, flickering party lights!
(NEVER LEAVE A BURNING CANDLE UNATTENDED!)
