Aren’t these adorable? Not only will these get us into the Halloween spirit, but I’m pretty sure Trick-or-Treaters won’t have trouble finding your house when you put out these festive jar lanterns.
To make these creative lanterns, choose jars in various sizes (such as leftover pickle jars). Brush a coat of decoupage glue and sealant, such as Mod Podge (available at craft stores), all over the jar. Then cover the entire jar, including the neck and bottom, with a layer of tissue paper.
For the pumpkin jar, cut the tissue paper into strips and lay them vertically over the jar. Slather the tissue paper with another layer of Mod Podge and wrap a decorative ribbon around the neck.
Print out the spooky and happy faces at tasteofhome.com/lantern (pdf), or you can design your own. Cut them out and use more decoupage glue to affix them on the jar. Insert a tea light candle, and you’ve got a Halloween decoration that will outlast any pumpkin.
