Halloween is my all-time favorite holiday!
I love doing creepy, fun, easy crafts for the spooky occasion!
This is the first Halloween / fall craft of the season-
They are called Fright Lights; the idea came from Family Circle Magazine.
In the magazine it says you need all these different materials.. I don't have time to go out and get all the stuff it calls for, so I had to make do with what I had around the house. The one thing I surprisingly had to buy, was black and orange tissue paper, (usually my mum has tons of different colored tissue paper, but for some reason she didn't have those two colors). Thankfully Target has them each (20 sheets for under $1.99).
Anyways, here's the materials I used:
-Black tissue paper
-Orange tissue paper
-Plastic or glass bowl
-Paint brush or 1" foam brush
-three or more Glass Jars (mason jars, pickle jars, olive jars, sauce jars..etc).
-And some water
First Step: Once the jars are clean, you are going to cut Orange tissue paper into 1 1/2 wide strips as long as the jar.
Second Step: Take a glob of Elmer's Glue, and a little bit of water, mix with paintbrush until it's watered down. Brush the glue on to the jar.
Step Three: Add strips of Orange tissue paper onto the jar, overlapping the paper is perfectly fine.
Step Four: Brush glue over the Orange tisse paper; let it dry for a few hours.
Step Five: Once the paper is dry, you can cut out faces or letters that you are going to add on your jar using a pencil and Black tissue paper.
Step Six: Glue on Black tissue paper (faces, letters, etc) on to the jar. Brush the glue on all of the Black tissue paper, let the paper dry, add candles in the jars, and ta da!
