Pumpkin glass jars (halloween craft)

glass jar recycle

Hi everybody!

First of all I have to thank Bowdabra for featuring my DIY Indian headband!! Thank you for including me in last week’s favorites! 🙂

So… Halloween is approaching! Even if it’s not a tradition here in Italy, Halloween is becoming quite popular… Well, always a good excuse to dress up and throw a party! 🙂
For the occasion I gave my little cousing two lanterns. Well, they might not be so original 🙂 but I like them and they were so easy to make. I thought this could be a perfect activity for children.

The paint is inside the jar, so the outside is shiny; and this makes the jar last longer!

Other lanterns I made: here, here and here! Have fun with your kids!

And a super fun halloween idea: snails!

You will need:

glass jars (for sauce of yogurt…)

paint and brushes

metal wire


tea light

First, I painted the inside of your jar with orange… color of pumpkins.

Then, after tracing a design with a marker, I painted the monster/pumpkin face with black paint.

Then I added metal wire to hold the little lantern, as I did here.

You can fill the pumpkin with treats and give it as a gift.

…but I added a tea light and waited for sunset

Il Riciclo Creativo

Tutto ciò che pensi sia da buttare potrà avere una seconda vita!

If I had a million hours...

...there are - literally - lists and lists of things I'd do. But life is short and time is limited. This is how I choose to spend the hours I've been given - and some funny stories along the way.


Projects for the home you can feel good about!
