How to make a fun fall lantern

Fun Fall Lantern Craft

What you’ll need (all items available at Amazon.com)

1. Mod Podge (we used the gloss Mod-Podge)
2. Ball half-pint canning jar (remove lid and discard)
3. Large brush set (We used Melissa and Doug)
4. An assortment of different colors of tissue paper cut into small shapes (we used squares) 

Mod Podge dries quickly, so paint one region of the jar at a time with it. Glue on the squares of tissue paper. Then do another region. Overlap the squares so that all areas of the jar are covered. When the jar is completely covered with the squares, paint a coat of Mod Podge over the tissue paper. Allow to dry. Insert a battery-operated tea light and enjoy the ambience. You can obviously make these for different holidays by changing the tissue paper colors. We will be making some for Christmas. You can add a ribbon for a little sweetness!
