Halloween Lanterns


I know Halloween is over now, but Lola and I made these great Halloween lanterns using tissue paper, baby food jars, and Mod Podge.

First, make sure the jars are clean. Then paint Mod Podge on the glass and start sticking pieces of tissue paper all over. Doesn’t have to be neat – Lola is only three, and she did a great job!

Once all the tissue paper bits are on, paint one final coat of Mod Podge all around to seal all the paper.

Finally, since it was Halloween, we used googly eyes to make a ghost (white) and a monster (purple), and used a black permanent pen to draw jack-o-lantern faces on the orange ones.

Pop a tea light inside, then sit back and enjoy the ambiance!
