Imagination Crafts - Halloween Lantern

Halloween Lantern

For my October 1st project for the Imagination Crafts Challenge Blog Iv'e made a Halloween Lantern - to make this project I found an old jar, then added wire to form a hanger.

Using the "Pumpkin" stencil - spread Black Stars Sparkle Medium onto the Spider's web twice and the spider 3 times plus the "Boo" wording and the inside of the pumpkin - last of all the cat.  All of these were stencilled onto orange tissue paper.

One the medium was dry I tore up the tissue images, cut out the web twice and stuck them all onto the jar with PVA glue.  I added another spider on a spring to the top so it wobbles when the jar moves.

The jar can then be covered in a layer of Acrylic glaze to make it water-proof.   

Products used

Sparkle Medium - Black Stars
Stencil - Pumpkin 
Extra - Orange tissue paper and PVA glue
