Greet your spooks this Halloween with these Halloween jar luminaries.  The perfect addition to your front porch on that special night.  This is also a great project to get the kids involved in.  Let them add the faces of their choice and you just fill in with paint.

Items Needed:

  • Glass Container

Cut your vinyl or contact paper into various pumpkin shapes.  Eyes, noses, mouths, eyebrows, and any other shape you desire.  I cut a wide assortment and then let the kids apply them to my jars.

Clean your jars well with rubbing alcohol before beginning.  Then apply your pumpkin face shapes in a variety of places.

Apply a layer of Crystal Gloss Enamels Glitter in orange over the entire jar and allow to dry.  Cut around all of your vinyl with a craft knife and remove.  Then add the 3D Gloss Enamels Writer in orange around each opening.  After this dries, fill each opening with Crystal Gloss Enamels in yellow.
