Quick and Easy Halloween Luminarias

Last week I shared my quick and easy Halloween treat jars, and a couple of keen-eyed readers noticed that not all of the jars pictured in the photos ended up as treat jars (good eyes!). After fielding a couple of questions regarding the surplus jars, I wanted to show you what I made with the rest of them…Halloween luminarias!

Halloween Luminaria Lanterns

To get the full how-to details, hop on over to the Halloween Treat Jar post, but the basic gist of it is this – place vinyl stickers on to the glass jars, spray paint, and then carefully remove the stickers (I used tweezers) before the paint is dry.

Pop a tea light or votive candle into the bottom of the jar, and you’ve got a Halloween lantern that will light up the entire night! I think I’m going to use a red flameless candle in this spider jar for Halloween night!

    1. Hi Donna, I have used mine outside just fine (no sealer!), so I think they should be okay. I haven’t left mine outside for more than a week at a time, so I can’t speak to the longevity of it, but for short-term displays, they worked just fine as-is.
