    These are awesome! I’ve always wanted to make some but just wasn’t sure how, this tutorial is perfect, I think I could handle making some of these, they’d even make great hostess gifts! Pinned!

    I was wondering if I used sent oil for oil lamps. Would that be ok?

      Hi Jan, I’m not sure if olive oil would work, but the lamp oil works really, really well, so I’d go with it.

    After lighting the wick and it burning a short time, oil started pudding on top of the jar lid. Any idea what I am doing wrong? I have everything tighten.

      Hi Tanya,
      I’m not sure what would be causing that, I’ve lit mine many times and never had that problem. The only thing I can think of is that your wick is too high. Perhaps try lowering it, or trimming it short.
      Hope this helps,

    Love the project Dannyelle and I rally love the photography. When you think about it glass mason jars are hard to photograph and really are not stunning artifacts on their own. But your staging and photography skills made them look gorgeous! The flickering flames are beautiful. Well done! I love your style in all of your projects! You are so talented and so creative! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with in 2017. Best wishes!

      Hi Donna,
      Yes, citronella oil should work great, and be great for keeping the bugs away outdoors.
      Best of luck with it,

    Hi , i came across your web site as i am wanting to make similar lighting setups. I am in Brisbane Australia , but have not been able to locate anything like the nipples and couplings that you have shown in your photos for putting the wick through. Can you tell me if there is an internet shop that you are aware of , that i can order these items. Thanks Peter

      Hi Peter,
      Sorry I don’t have a source for you in Australia, but I would suggest a hardware store -if you haven’t looked there already.
      Wishing you the best of luck,

    Hi! Just wondering where you found your wicks? I’m looking on Amazon and can’t seem to find any with good reviews. Thanks.

      Hi Christy, I actually just picked mine up at the hardware store. As a tip you might not have known, you can search on Amazon for products with a rating of 4 or higher, it’s on the left side bar. Here’s a link to some higher rating options. http://amzn.to/2tckt7c Best of luck,
