DYI recycled ghost/pumpkin lantern

"J" loves to help with lighting the pumpkin at night and I am not always to crazy about him doing the lighter. So I thought it would be neat to make these lanterns and place a battery tea light in it and he can do it himself.

They are very simple you can make them with any jar, we used a small baby food jar. Then placed tissue paper over the mod podge.

Then used a sharpie to draw the faces.

After you place the 1st layer on let it dry and then reapply the mod podge again to extra seal.
