This a less sleek and less perfect looking "kid" version of the jar lanterns found on one of my favorite websites here.
What you will need:
empty glass jar
black construction paper
Instead of cutting in strips like the original post we decided we would rip our tissue paper apart into little pieces. Then we "mod podged" it onto our glass jar trying to cover every empty space. We then we cut out eyes and mouths out of construction paper and also adhered them with mod podge.
We let the mod podge dry and then put a battery powered tea light inside to make it more safe for kids. Spooky, don't you think!
