Easiest Ever Halloween Lanterns

Halloween Decorations.
If you love Halloween then here is amazing easy and quick way to make some cute decorations.

Here's what I used for this project:

  • A pack of four mini storage jars and a some flameless LED Tealights. (You want your jars just begin enough to fit your tealights in).
  • Pebeo Vitrea 160 Glass paints in Paprika, Anise and Amaranto
  • Pebeo Vitra 160 Black Marker.
  • Small round brush
I simply googled some images of Halloween Pumpkins for inspiration and drew them onto the jars with the Black Marker.

Using your small round brush, drop and sort of flood the paint onto the glass to fill the area without creating brush strokes. Luckily my jars were flat on the back and the from so I was able to lay them down to dry flat so the paint didn't run. Fill in your other colours such as green for stalks, purple for a hat...

I was a bit impatient and didn't wait for my marker to dry and it bled a bit, so if you want to avoid give your marker 15 minutes or so to dry.

Once they are painted you get let them dry and bake them in the oven as per instruction on the packaging but its probably not really necessary unless you plan to wash them. 

Place you flames tealights in the jars, and there you have it, cute little Halloween lanterns!
