I made these lanterns out of old pickle jars and tissue paper. I cleaned the jars and then, using a paint brush, painted on strips of ripped up tissue paper with some white glue mixed with a little water. I silkscreened the images onto pieces of tissue paper, let them dry, and painted them on. Done and done!

Thank you!

The light is coming from candles inside the jars.

I think the tissue paper is on the outside. That would be safer, and then the silkscreen would be easier to put on.

I dream of a house covered with your art, and would love a personal swap. Pm me if you'd like to spread the crafty love! I also need blue fabric scraps for a scrap quilt!

The tissue paper is most definitely on the outside. It wouldn't be safe at all to put it on the inside - yikes!

I'd like to see the ones you make, xhannahcorex. We made lanterns kind of like these in grade one, so I don't think it is in anyway a new idea...

You can also try pasting different coloured strips of tissue paper over each other so that they make new colours when the light shines through. I think it would also be neat to use smaller jars so that they could fit tealights.
