For your yard .DIY Tin Can Lanterns - one advantage over mason jar lanterns: can put holes in the bottom to let rain water drain out. Less light, though. A combo of the two, with some jars kept in the shed for parties, would be nice.
Luminaries -- These are particularly great around the patio, or in a sitting space you’ve created out in the garden. Use tin coffee cans (or soup cans) and using a hammer and nail. Put citronella candles in these.
