Upcycled Mason jar lantern

I'm playing catch up on a bunch of blog posts. I'm a bit behind in sharing some of my latest DIYs, Crafternoons and other crafty awesomeness.

Here's a simple project I made for my Halloween Crafternoon with North Vancouver City Library in October. It's a Mason jar lantern.

First you'll need a Mason jar of any size. The circumference should be wide enough for a tea light.



Next you'll need orange tissue paper. Your first step is to tear small pieces of the tissue paper for decoupaging onto the Mason jar.



Use a sponge brush to coat the Mason jar with Mod Podge then add the pieces of tissue paper. Add another coat of Mod Podge on top of the tissue paper to smooth out the paper and to seal it to the Mason jar.



Keep adding tissue paper until the Mason jar is covered. Allow to dry.



Once dry, use a black Sharpie to add a jack-o'-lantern face.



Now you can insert your tea light. I used an LED tea light for my lantern.



This is a very simple DIY and it looks pretty darn spooky.



Gotta love easy peasy upcycling projects!
