I love to decorate for the fall holidays and Jack O' Lanterns are one of my favorite decorations. I made these Jack O' Lanterns with canning jars. It's so easy to do with etchall® etching creme! These jars look great sitting on my window sill filled with tinted water.
Or, fill them up with candy corn or other treats and give them to your neighbors! Add tea lights and set them on your porch (use the battery-powered ones for safety). You can even darken the etched area with permanent marker for another look.
To make these jars, you'll need some etchall® etching creme. Then, you'll need some sticky paper to mask your jar so it will only be etched where you want it to be.
I didn't have any etchmask with which to create the design, so I tried a few other sticky papers that I had around the house like masking tape, address label stickers and shelf liner. Shelf liner worked the best. The grid on the back of the liner helps in drawing the design. But, for jack o' lantern faces, you don't have to be too symmetrical!
Fifteen minutes later, I scraped off the creme and put it back in the jar (it's re-usable!!). I rinsed the jar, removed the mask and - voila! - it's ready to go! Add some ribbon, rick rack or twine with beads or charms for jaunty jack o' lantern jars!
Hope you will #cre8time for crafting!
