Jack-O-Lanterns

We used some vintage mason jars to make our own jack-o-lanterns by sticking painter's tape cut into triangles for the faces.
Paint one coat of orange acrylic craft paint.


Let the paint dry a little bit and then peel off the tape before it is completely dried.
I waited until it was completely dry and when I peeled the tape off, the paint peeled off a bit so I had to use an exacto knife to trace the shapes before completely removing them.  Let them dry several hours or overnight.

TA -DA!
Halloween Jarkins 
(That's what my daughter named them.)
We are going to use battery operated tea lights in ours for safety.

Happy Halloween!

  1. Too funny - we did this too! My son & I painted little votive holders, peeled off the tape, and displayed them in our dining room. Great minds think alike!! I can't remember where I got the idea from...
