HOW TO MAKE HALLOWEEN LANTERNS


GLOW STICK PUMPKIN JARS

Materials
Using pumpkin decals simplifies this craft, but you can use craft foam, construction paper, or any similar crafting supplies that you might have on hand.
Method
  • Begin by having kids decorate empty jars to look like jack-o-lanterns.  To do this you can use an array or varying supplies.

MAKING GLOW STICK JARS

  • Use scissors to carefully open 2-3 glow sticks per jar.  You may want to wear gloves while doing this, as some glow sticks do contain glass.
  • Pour the contents of the glow sticks into the decorated jars.

  • Secure the lids tightly.  Shake the jars, and then enjoy their glow!  

MAKE HALLOWEEN LANTERNS USING FLAMELESS CANDLESS


Another easy way to make spooky lanterns is to use flameless candles.  This allows you to to enjoy the glow of the jars again and again!
