I think they’re super cute.  I’m doing mason jars too and love the natural rustic look. Awesome diy.

I got twine to go with my mason jars, too!  They are very cool!  Have you though about spacing the twine so you can see the glow between the twine?

I really like the twine!  Good idea.  And I think votives would be your best bet if you want candles the entire time – that is, unless you’d like to ask someone to light new tea lights throughout the evening.

@AbbyM:  That was my first thought!  Does the twine allow the votives to glow a little?

I think they’re cute & fitting for an outdoor wedding!  :o)

I have heard they have 10 hour buring tea lights…not sure if that is true or not.  I got 4 hour candles for my reception, but they are just in the basic tea light holder.  You could put rocks in the bottom, or sand, if you feel they are too short to light up the entire thing.

Have you checked Ikea, Michaels, Joanns for cheaper voties?  Sometimes you can find them 2/$1.  But that could get expensive depending on how many candles you have.

Be careful of hot glue around a flame.  I would test your sample with a candle burning in the holder.  Hot glue may melt and you could end up with an unhappy mess.

I really like the twine! But maybe wrap 1/3 of the votive in the center so you can actually see the illumination.

I love the twine look. There are flameless tea lights out there. You could look into that as an alternative to a tea light candle. Since the votive is wrapped no one would even know!
