Spooky Faces Lantern
Strand of Halloween lights (Available at Dollar Tree)
1 sheet of die cut scrapbook paper (Around .50 at my local craft store)
- Wrap the piece of paper around your jar and cut to fit.
- Add a dab of glue to the ends of the paper.
- Wrap the paper around the jar and press firmly on the glued areas. Hold into place so you know it has adhered to the jar.
- Once it is dry, place the strand of lights inside and plug in. Presto! You have an instant, no flame lantern!
Think of all of the fun variations you can try with this craft. My local craft store had all sorts of scrapbook paper designs such as mummy faces, pumpkins, bats, ghosts, and more. Find a piece that is die cut such as the one here and you are ready to roll. You can even use various colored lights if you wished such as green or white to give it a spooky look. Get creative and make something that YOU like and reflects YOU. After all, that is what makes this fun!
