thanks to logan for coming up with this idea.  (see post  http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=12686.0

I came across that idea while trying to think about what I could to for my friend's engagement party, where they asked me to do the lighting.  Budget was tight, so the less money spent, the better.

I didnt even have a silkscreen to start, really!  I threw one together from a med-sized stretcher (as in for paintings) with the finest voile-y fabric I could find at the fabric store.  I did purchase a small screenprinting squegee for the job, tho.

The jars were all *donated* by people in my neighbourhood.   (as in, i went around on recycling day pulling them out of recycling boxes.  sheesh!  what a job THAT was!  and what looks I got, LOL!) I used all different sizes of jars,  even baby food jars - they were super cute.

the tissue paper was your standard dollar-store variety - white.  I also tried green, i think i likes the way green looks better, tho white gave off FAR more light. 

*crossing fingers, hoping that pics work*

That idea of Logan's has been on my to do list. I love your results. The names in script, the color, the placement, beautiful! I'm sure you're friends were pleased.

Those would be a great idea for party favors doing double-duty as table decorations.   I like!  I like!
