I don’t follow directions very well, but there were only three on this project – so it was a little easier. The first step was to gather up the supplies (empty jars, black glass paint, colored glass paint, wire cutters, paintbrushes, coated black 20 gauge wire).
Once I had everything gathered together, I washed the jars…
Once the jars were completely dry, I tried to paint the faces on the inside of the jars, but I didn’t like how they came out.
So I scrapped that and painted the inside of the jars in several Halloween colors.
When they were dry, I painted Jack ‘o’ Lantern faces on the outside of each of the jars. Once everything was dry, I measured the wire to make the handles. I took one piece of wire and wrapped it around the top lip of the jar and twisted the ends together. Then I took a second piece and attached one end to the left side of the wire on the jar and the other to the right side.
I didn’t put handles on all the jars. They are came out pretty cool. I think I’m going to put tea light candles in them and put them in the dining room window.
I like the green one best… Which one is your favorite?
