I thought I would have a go at making a Halloween jar lantern like I have seen on American craft site/blogs. I didn’t have any orange Decopatch paper, so I thought I would give some of the orange tissue paper I already had a try. It wasn’t as strong as Decopatch but it worked with a gentler touch than my norm!
Once the jar was covered, I cut out two faces using a lightweight black paper and stuck them on both sides of jar, over the tissue paper. and then followed this with several layers of clear glossy varnish. The hanger was made using red string and lots of knots.
