How to Make

  1. Use a black glass pen to draw your spooky scene onto the outside of the glass jar. This can be as simple or as detailed as you would like.
  2. Cut a piece of purple and orange tissue paper that is the same height as the jar and wide enough to wrap around it, then tear through the long edge of the orange tissue paper and place on top of the purple piece.
  3. Roll both tissue paper pieces up, with the purple on the inside and place them inside the glass jar, use your fingers to gently spread them out.
  4. Place a LED tealight inside of the glass jar and watch your spooky scene glow.
