Halloween Mason Jars Luminaries Supplies


First place the stickers on each mason jar and paint them with the frosted glass spray paint and let dry.




Once dry, paint with the glitter blast spray paint and let dry.



While you are waiting for the paint to dry you, you can paint the mason jar rings. Then once everything is dry that you can tie on the twine, and decorate the jars however you would like with some embellishments. That is it! Now enjoy your super cute Halloween inspired mason jar luminaries!

    Do the candles give them the brilliant orange glow we see on the photo. I use those candles in a lot of projects and don’t see how you were able to achieve that glow??

      Thanks for asking I’m glad you like them 🙂 The Led “candle” lights that I got are a tad warmer Hue, and so are naturally more “orange”. But yes the pics were done with very minimal color correction or post work. The trick mostly lies in your camera settings.

      The photos were shot with a Canon EOS Rebel T2i in very low light situation with the following settings;

      ISO: 400
      Apature fstop: 4.0
      Shutter speed: 0.6

      The Lower shutter speed allows light to be captured longer and accumulate which adds some of the ambient glow. Of course you also want to put your camera on a tripod or table, so that you dont move/shake the camera while it is taking the shot. Otherwise you will get blur/ghosting.

      Oh, I forgot to mention. The white balance was set to flash instead of auto, which also gives it a warmer exposure.

    It looks like the letter stickers were removed after painting but I don’t see that in the instruction steps

    Do I peel the stickers off once the paint dries?

    I have exhausted my search for 2″ letters like the ones shown. I had to settle for boring basic block style letters. Too often I am unable to find the items necessary to look like the projects posted 🙁 Not sure where else to look as I have already tried Michaels, Jo-Anne’s, Hobby Lobby and AC Moore and a few department stores!
