TPD Magazine: DIY Halloween Lantern

Our crafty assistant editor, Charynn of Two Sugar Babies concocted this darling little DIY project for the Fall issue of The Party Dress Magazine and it’s so cute, we are sharing the simple steps here today, so that you can all do one (or four!) yourselves.  In fact, with the school holiday today, this may be just the project you are looking for to keep everyone occupied!

Step 1

Gather your supplies: glass mason jars, spray paint, paint brush and patterned ribbon

Step 2

Turn the jars upside down on your painting surface and apply several coasts of spray paint according to the manufacturers instructions. Let the jars dry completely.

Step 3

Paint your chosen designs on the outside of the jars with black acrylic paint.  (it may take a couple of coats to get a solid color) We suggest a pumpkin face, spiders, ghost eyes, or bats.  Let it dry completely

Step 4

Optional – apply a coat of high gloss varnish to the outside of the jars.  Glue a patterned ribbon around the top and place a tea light in them to add a nice glow to your holiday party.  Please remember to keep out of reach of children.
