Let me start off by saying that Andrew wanted me to name this blog post “Eat, Drink and BOO Crafty”. Not a bad idea.
Anyway – I asked, and you answered! Two weeks ago I listed several Halloween craft options, and the Halloween Luminaries received the most votes. Remember these?
I was a little nervous how it’d turn out (as I’m sure is normal when crafting), but I went for it! First up: a trip to Hobby Lobby.
I grabbed three Mason jars, some Halloween ribbon, sticker letters (they had tons of fonts and sizes!), some frosted glass finish, some glitter blast spray, and some no-flame tealights. Oh, and some sponge brushes, because I thought I’d paint the jars’ lids, but decided not to after all. 🙂
The first step was to stick the BOO letters on the jars.
I took the picture after frosting just one jar so you could see the difference. After they dry (about 30 minutes), the next step is to add the glitter blast spray. I will warn you – the jars looked pretty awful after the frosted glass spray. They were splotchy and uneven, and I panicked. But then when I added the glitter blast spray, it covered up all the flaws.
