Halloween Lanterns

Halloween Lanterns


These look great, are so simple and if you use water based paint you can wash the jars and use them again for something else!

How to make glass jar Halloween lanterns

You will need:

  • Glass jars
  • Orange paint
  • Paint brush
  • Masking tape
  • Scissors
  • Fairy lights, small led lights or candles to light up the lanterns
  1. Use the masking tape to make eyes, noses and mouth shapes on the lanterns – sharp edges can look more spooky 👻
  2. Cover the jars with orange paint on the outside only (inside and the paint may burn if you use candles)
  3. After the paint has dried remove the masking tape and put your lights or candles inside.
