Creative Ways to Set Up Your Exterior Lighting

Instead of spending your time packing, loading, and moving tons of boxes, call All My Sons Moving & Storage for packing services in Jacksonville this summer. We’ve got you covered, so you can use your free time designing your home as the perfect summer relaxation spot. Are you looking for creative exterior lighting concepts? We’ve got a DIY suggestion to lighten up your backyard.

This fun, little DIY project is great afternoon project for the family! This is a project that the kids will love and it is so easy. All you need is: empty mason jars, scissors, Mod Podge, sponge brushes, book pages, sheet music or newspaper and tea lights!

Use your scissors and cut your pages or newspaper into small pieces. To give your jars a nice textured effect, cut them into different shapes and sizes. Next, dip your sponge brushes into the Mod Podge and coat the back of one of the pieces of paper. Place the strip of paper on the jar and continue until you cover the jar. Try to overlap and layer the pieces, if you want. It is up to you to decide how you want to decorate your jars! You can make them all different, or keep a consistent theme. Once you are done putting the paper on the jar, coat the whole with more Mod Podge to creative a protective seal. Let the jars dry and then do one more layer of Mod Podge and then your jars are good to go!

Once the jars have dried, illuminate each one with a tea light that will create a rustic and relaxed look for family and friends to enjoy.
