Tools and Materials
Oil-based enamel paint in black and orange or yellow
Extra-wide masking tape
Plastic-covered 20-gauge wire
Small candle (such as the LED candle)
1. In a well-ventilated area, paint inside of jar orange or yellow until opaque. Apply masking tape to outside. Press out air bubbles. Draw a jack-o'-lantern face in marker on tape (or print out our templatesonto adhesive labels). Cut out and peel away features with a utility knife to form a stencil (an adult should do this).
2. Paint stencil with black paint. When dry, peel off tape.
3. For a handle, loop the end of wire with pliers. Make a lasso shape that will hug jar. Bend remaining wire over for a handle. Cut wire; make another loop to hook onto ring. Slip ring over jar's mouth; tighten.
