Countdown to Mabon: Fall Oil Lamps


I have decided to take full advantage of this long holiday weekend. So far, I have made two new oil lamps for the Fall season. This time; however, I enlised a little help from my hubby who used to make them way back when we sold them at craft shows for our eclectic Pagan group, "O.P.E.N. (Old Paths Enlightener's Network)."

They are so easy to make. All you need is a Mason Jar with a hole in the center of the lid (sold at your local "A.C. Moore" Store), a bottle of clear lamp oil, a wick, and some silk leaves and/or flowers (or whatever you would like to use to decorate the inside of your jar. You can even add fragrance oil to them as well i.e. spice scents, etc.

Jars before decorating ...

and after ...

I also found a cute little orange glass bottle to use for our Samhain ritual in October. The bottom reminded me of a pumpkin.

Also, my goddaughter's mom had asked me to create a Winter/Christmas wreath for her home ...

Well, my friends, I guess that is about all for now. Happy crafting everyone!!


  1. Those lamps are awesome and beautiful, my friend, I would have never thought a person could create lamps out of jars like those.

    1. Thank you so much, my friend!

      Love and Light, Kim
