Valentine's Day Lantern
Sponge paint a mason jar, decorate, and add string lights to create a festive Valentine's Day Lantern you can display!
1 To create a resist, start by drawing a heart on construction paper with a No. 2 pencil, then cut it out with scissors.
2 Tape the paper heart to the outside of a mason jar.
3 Using a sponge or sponge-tip brush, coat the outside of the mason jar in paint that’s on a disposable plate. Let dry 2–3 hours.
4 When dry, peel away the heart to reveal the paint resist.
5 To create a frosted effect, roll a piece of parchment paper and place it inside the mason jar. Use your fingers to fit it to the inside of your jar.
6 Fill mason jar with battery-operated string lights.
7 Add twine or ribbon around the rim of your jar and display!
