Again, with the aid of Pinterest, I found the inspiration to make these "adorable" pumpkin lanterns. And I use the word "adorable" in quotes, because my that's what my husband called them. I wasn't sure to be flattered or scared.
To make these, you'll need:
- Mason jars
- Orange paint
- Black paint
- Mod Podge
- Spray sealer
- Floral wire
Glass can be super tricky to paint. There is paint formulated specially for glass, but I found that mixing Mod Podge with acrylic paint makes it stick pretty well. I made a mixture of one part of each.
Step 1: Paint the outside of your jar orange. The number of coats is up to you. I just did one.
Step 2: After the paint dries, paint on a pumpkin face using your black paint.
Step 3: Attach floral wire around the rim and over the top to make a handle. This is tricky and I actually ended up hot gluing it down.
Step 4: Spray with sealant.
Step 5: Tie a bow with your decorative ribbon on the handle.
Step 6: Add a tea light and enjoy!
