They make hollow wax votives that you could use and place the LED candle inside them. You could do these depending on your budget.

OR you could cover the jar with something. I think lace would look better than tulle.

You could have colored stones in the bottom and put the candle on top, kind of bury it in.  Youl could also do colored or plain sand.  You could wrap just a ribbon around the mason jar which will distract from the LED candle and cast a nice color (that doesn’t seem as time consuming as wrapping in lace).  Are you having a fall theme?  What about silk autumn colored leaves in the bottom with the LEDs on top?

You could nestle the light up to the rim  in sand, or anything else that suits your decor

You could frost the mason jars with paint. You don’t have to do a monogram like the pic- you could leave them plain, or use contact paper to stick a heart or something else consistent with your wedding theme on some of the jars, then peel it off after you spray.


Along the same vein,I would also consider cutting lacy stockings in lengths to fit the jar, slide the tube over the jar, and spray paint through the stocking to get a lacy pattern.

 You could wrap a strip of lace or burlap at the height that would hide the tealight. You could then get just the glow through the upper part of the jar.

Cover the mason jar with silk leaves and wrap the LED tealight in tulle to further disguise the light.

I think an easy and economical way would be to get a frosted votive holder and some sand, beans or rocks or something that goes with your theme and bury the votive holder in there, it will mask the fake flame and also not take away from the mason jar look.

while searching for a picture I saw this cute idea too… this would be really cute to do halfway up to cover the votive (http://www.instructables.com/id/Icicle-Mason-Jars/)
