Add a Tea Light

Place a flickering LED light into the glass votive holder. To conserve battery power, tea lights can be turned off when they're not in use.

Wrap the Wire

Wrap 18-gauge wire around the top of the jar, just under the bottom lip, twice. About 18 inches of wire should do the trick, depending on the size of the jar.
