It’s October y’all! You know what that means, pumpkins as far as the eye can see! I myself am not a fan of pumpkin spice so I don’t get down on a PSL but I do love a good jack-o-lantern and decorate my house with tons of them. I have a few milk bottles (aff link) left over from my stained glass craft and decided to make some jack-o-lantern luminaries to decorate the kitchen.
I decided to spray paint them and the best way to do that is put them in a cardboard box. This cuts down on mess and ensures that you won’t also paint your patio or grass. While they dry, go inside and make your jack-o-lantern faces. I used my Silhouette Curio (aff link) to cut out 5 faces. I picked some faces from their online shop and was able to cut them all at once. Cut the faces apart and peel away the vinyl so just the eyes and smile remain.
Normally, you use transfer paper to apply vinyl designs but that will rip the paint off so just apply your stickers with your fingers. Now they’re ready for some flameless candles on a dark and stormy night.
- 5 glass milk bottles
- 1 sheet permanent adhesive vinyl – my favorite brand (aff link)
- Silhouette Curio or a pair of scissors
- 1 can of spray paint
- Empty cardboard box
- Place your bottles upside down in your cardboard box and spray paint them. Leave outside to dry.
- Cut out 5 jack-o-lantern faces and peel away excess vinyl.
- Hand apply each face to each bottle and place a flameless candle inside.
What’s your favorite way to decorate for fall?
