Jack-o'-Lantern Luminaries

Materials Needed:

  • clear acrylic paint buckets (or cylindrical glass vase)
  • jack-o'-lantern face glass clings (or permanent marker)
  • sand
  • battery-operated tea lights

Add Jack-o'-Lantern's Face

Gather all supplies and select the face cling/decal you would like to use (Image 1). Peel backing off of cling and adhere to front of paint bucket (Image 2). Tip: Alternately, you can draw a jack-o'-lantern face directly onto the bucket with a permanent marker.

Add Sand and Tea Light

Add sand to the bottom of paint bucket (Image 1). Add a battery-operated tea light and your luminary is ready to light your walkway (Image 2). Note: Most flameless candles have a battery life of around 100 hours, which should last through several nights leading up to Halloween.
