Spooky crafting.

Wanna see my Halloween lanterns? You do, I know. 🙂

Halloween Lanterns.

I got the idea from last month’s issue of Country Living, and I saved the page. Over the summer, my parents brought us a ton of their home-canned green beans and tomatoes, and I’d been dutifully saving the jars with no purpose in mind (but they don’t recycle here, and I couldn’t bring myself to toss them in the trash). Eureka!

I contacted my fave crafty queen Katie and asked what she uses for decoupage in her creations. She tipped me to Modge Podge®, and that’s what I used on the jars, along with several colors of tissue paper, some ribbon and hot glue, and decorations that I cut from construction paper.

I had the supplies spread over my dining room table one night when my neighbor Valeen stopped by. She asked what the mess was for (only more politely!), and I explained the craft I was about to attempt, offering her some jars to make her own. She stayed, and we worked for a few hours, watching Case 39 while we crafted. The results were so fun!

(I used one of Philip’s foam ear plugs for gun firings for Frank’s bolts,
as well as a small strip of curling ribbon for his scar.)
