Mason Jar Halloween Lanterns

Halloween is coming and I cannot wait! I love the cooler temps, changing fall colors, and pumpkins everywhere! To welcome this amazing season, we created these simple and easy to make Halloween lanterns using items we already had on hand. 

DIY Halloween Lanterns 

It’s a very simple and easy craft which was perfect because I do not seem to have much free time these days. I have been seeing these awesome lanterns on Pinterest made from mason jars. I loved them and knew I had to make some myself.

So I grabbed my supplies and got right to work!

Supplies you will need:
  • Mason jars – I had a few jars on hand, but can purchase from Walmart, dollartree, etc. for $1.
  • Spray paint – Not ideal, but worked great. If using paint, an acrylic craft paint would probably be the best to use.
  • Vinyl Decals or paint stickers, etc for face 
  • Ribbon – to finish up your jars.

1. Start with plain, empty jars and paint each one your choice of color. 

2. I choose white and orange. Be sure to let dry completely.

3. Add your face decals or paint them on. Along with your ribbon. Can also add a creepy, scary Halloween design as well

4. Add ribbon and add a candle to the inside on the jars for an added glow.

Finally, just set out and enjoy your hard work.
