31 Days of Things I've Been Wanting to Do, Day 26: Jar-O-Lanterns (Re-Post)

What You'll Need:
Glass jars (jars used in canning or saved jars from jelly, pickles, etc.)
Orange Paint
Brown Paint
Paint Brush
Painters tape
Surface preparations (trash bags work great for this)
Ribbon, straw decoration, etc.
Tea light candles

Here's How:
1. Prepare painting surface and painter. :)

2. Tape faces on the jars, using the painters tape, cut to desired shapes.

3. Ready, Set, Paint! (our favorite part)
Paint over the tape and around the jar, saving the top to be painted brown after the orange paint has dried.

4. When jars are dry, carefully remove tape.

5. Decorate with ribbon (optional, of course).
 Add a tea light, light it, and enjoy your 'Jar-O-Lantern',
guaranteed never to rot.
