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!
And a super fun halloween idea: snails!
You will need:
glass jars (for sauce of yogurt…)
paint and brushes
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
HAVE FUN!! 🙂
