“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Craft Project: Halloween Lanterns

Happy October! We are in full-on fall decorating mode at our house. This weekend we got together with my parents for a fall feast and some crafty time. Before we went to their house I googled "Halloween crafts" and this cute lantern project jumped out at me. Here's the link:

Halloween Votive Lanterns

You'll need the following materials:
  • some old jars (baby food, or any size mason jar or recycled jar will do)
  • orange and white crepe paper or tissue paper
  • black construction paper
  • modge podge
  • paintbrushes
  • scissors
  • votive candles
Cut or tear crepe paper into small squares, and use modge podge and a paintbrush to adhere to the outside of your glass jar. Cut out pieces for the face from construction paper and use modge podge to affix to the jar as well. Let dry and place the votive candle inside. Turn out the lights and feel festive! More Halloween crafts and recipes are on their way!
