Ok, everyone, we’re in the final stretch to All Hallow’s Eve. It’s pumpkin carving, candy buying, last-minute costume touch-up time! What’s that? You’re still scrambling about trying to figure out some last minute decoration ideas?
Me too. I really needed something to brighten up the porch on Halloween night. Something to give my front entry a bit of an eerie look without frightening any of the real little kiddos to pieces. I needed something fast and simple. I’m absolutely done buying anything more for Halloween so it needed to be something I had all the materials for already.
I found this pin on Pinterest and I thought it was cute. I wish I could credit it to someone but it doesn’t link back to any specific URL. When I pinned it I knew it was something I could re-create quickly. What a fun and simple project for your kids to help with too. I knew these lanterns would look great outside of the house on Halloween night.
I had about a dozen leftover mason jars from canning cukes (you call them that too, right?) this past August, so the jars were easy to come by. I wanted to make the inside of the jar look a little more realistic, so instead of cotton balls, I used some spider web material I already had in my Halloween bin. Instead of a glow stick, I used a battery-operated tea light, and I found some leftover spiders from another craft I had already made this year. Just three simple steps and BAM (or should I say BOO), I had my decorations ready. Here’s how I put it all together!
