Upcycled Jar Ramadan Lantern

This was an upcycling project.

Jar Lantern Craft

I used an old juice dispenser. Any sort of jar will work for this project. First I had to clean the jar thoroughly. We decorated the jar with tissue paper shapes. I slathered Modge Podge onto to small sections and the kids stuck tissue paper shapes onto the outside of the jar.

I then inserted the string light through the tap opening (a regular jar will have the light crawling out of it). I spaced out the lights around the interior of the jar with the help of some stick tape. Lastly I printed Ramadhan Mubarak greeting onto overhead projector sheet and attached it to the jar. Plug in and enjoy.

Note:

You can completely omit the tissue paper part. However an empty jar sitting on a table top with string lights in it will look weird during the day. This step will make it pretty for the day as well.
