Citronella Mason Jar Lanterns

Aren’t these Citronella Mason Jar Lanterns beautiful?    Retro reproduction mason jars in a lovely shade of blue are filled with liquid citronella.  A hole is punched in the flat cap of a 2 part lid, a cotton string is threaded through, and ignited to make a natural and beautiful bug-free light for your garden spa party.
