Hi again, it’s Wendi from H2OBungalow and I’m here today to share my Mason Jar Halloween Luminaries. These little guys are so versatile, they can be used on a front porch, in a window or even to light a dark walkway for trick or treaters. The best feature is that they are battery operated so no cords or wires needed!
- Mason Jar or other plastic or glass jar
- Craft paints and paint brush
- Battery operated LED lights and batteries, I found mine at the Dollar Tree
Begin by painting your jars. Coat the outside completely with a background color. Lighter colors work better with the lights. Try to get an even coat, but not too thick. Make sure you can see light through your jar when you hold it up to the light.
While your painted Halloween ghoolies are drying get the LED lights ready. I found these battery operated LED lights from the Dollar Tree and took off the top part. The bottom base fits perfectly inside the wide mouth mason Jars. I was really surprised by the amount of light these little itty bitty LEDs give off!
Now go find a dark place like a closet or pantry to see your spooky fun mason jar Halloween Luminaires light up! I looked all over my little house for a dark place to try out mine. I found a closet and couldn’t wait to clear off the shelf to see my new creations:)
I may make a few more to store extra goodies or send them to work with hubby full of Halloween candy so we (I) don’t go on a sugar binge after the trick or treaters are finished.
I love decorating for the holidays but only have time for quick projects. You too?
