Make these adorable Jack ‘o Lantern luminaries, just in time for Halloween!
We are starting to get our Halloween decorations out, and I thought it would be fun to make mini jack-o-lanterns for the kid’s rooms.
These Jack-O-Lantern Luminary candles were so easy to make, and they love having them in their rooms!
Would you like to make a few of these? (It’s a great way to use up all those old jelly/baby food/dip glass jars we’ve all been hoarding saving…)
Here is how I made them:
- Small glass jars w/ lids
- Paint (I used leftover spray paint, but I am sure acrylic would work too.)
- Stickers/Sticker paper (I used address labels)
- Scissors/exacto knife
- Tea lights
On your sticker paper, draw out whatever shape you like.
Cut the shapes out with the Exacto knife or scissors.
Apply the stickers to the jar with your tweezers and press them down firmly to avoid paint seeping under the stickers.
Give the jars a couple of coats of paint. Paint your lids if desired. I painted one black and tied a green piece of scrap fabric around the other.
Once the paint is dry, peel off your stickers, add the tea lights, and they’re done! They both came out so cute!
This would make an awesome kids craft! Have fun making your lanterns!
