I recently bought a pack of glass paint because i thought i could paint a plate like they displayed at the craft store.Sadlt the paint said I couldn't get it wet, so i set out to try to find something to do with them that doesn't get wet.Jar lanterns it is.

  • A medium clear jar ( like for jam or pickles )
  • Glass paints
  • Thin wire
  • Pliers
  • A marker
If you want to use a no fire tea light or just for fun and to make it look cuter you can design the cap too, you'll need
  • The cap
  • Fabric of your choice
  • Fabric glue
  • Scissors

Step 1: Draw it out

Use your marker to draw out your design on the jar. If you want you can also just free hand it .
