Halloween Lanterns


I saw this project on the internet and thought they were about the cutest homemade craft I have seen for Halloween.  I just had to make them.  You use canning jars and mod podge with tissue paper.  I didn't read the directions very well.  You were suppose to cut 1 1/2 inch strips of tissue paper and put some mod podge on the outside of the mason jar, then add your strip of tissue paper. then mod podge over the jar again when finished.

What I did was put the tissue paper on the inside of the jar and did the mod podge on the inside of the jar.  Even if it was wrong they are just to cute and actually I think I like it better.  The ridges don't show up like the  jars on the website.  I added a set of Christmas lights and  tucked a few into each jar.  I won't go away and leave them on, but they are sure cute and I have gotten so many compliments on them.  Everyone wants a set.  You can click on the picture for a bigger view!

If anyone wants the site for the directions, here is the site where I saw them at!!
