Mock Sandblasted Valentine's Day Lantern

Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate the love existing between a couple. Turn old cheese spread glass jars into romantic lanterns and use them to set the mood for a special Valentine's dinner.

Tip: For each jar, only a little bit of spray paint is used, so with one can of spray paint, one could make a few of these lanterns.

  1. Punch eight flowers from the cardstock.
  2. Lightly spray the one side of the flowers with the Heritage Contact Glue and allow to dry.
  3. Position the flowers all around the glass jar.
  4. Use cotton wool and methylated sprites to clean the jar all around the flowers.

  6. Place the jar upside down and spray with the Spraymate Sandblast spray paint.
  7. Allow to dry and add a second layer.
  8. Allow to dry thoroughly before removing the cardstock flowers.
