mason jars, a little bit of tissue paper, a whole lot of mod podge, a tea light or two… & you have hallowen-inspired mason jar lanterns – perfect for your holiday monster mash, & a super easy halloween craft.

i was working in the lab late one night, when my eyes beheld an eerie sight
for my monster from his slab began to rise, and suddenly to my surprise

he did the mash, he did the monster mash
the monster mash, it was a graveyard smash
he did the mash, it caught on in a flash
he did the mash, he did the monster mash

from my lab in the castle east, to the master bedroom where the vampires feast
the ghouls all came from their humble abodes, to get a jolt from my electrodes

they did the mash, they did the monster mash
the monster mash, it was a graveyard smash
they did the mash, it caught on in a flash
they did the mash, they did the monster mash

halloween mason jar lantern

instructions: grab your favorite mason jar. using mod podge apply strips of tissue paper to the outside of the jar. using the template below, or after drawing your own, cut your “monster faces” out of black construction paper (or use white paper that you colored black like i did) & glue to the newly-tissue-papered jars using pod podge. wrap the metal lid band in your fabric halloween-inspired ribbon or fabric & you have your very own monster. drop in a tea light (i preferred the battery operated ones), remove the lid & use it for a spooky lantern. or, fill it with some yummy treats, seal up the top & you’ve got a boo-tiful gift, ready for giving.

wanna use my halloween mason jar lantern templates? click on the picture, then right click on the larger picture & save it to your desktop.  print, cut out & trace onto black paper (simply color in the drawing using a black sharpie), cut out & mod podge onto your mason jar.
