Day 2 of the Smeared and Smudged 31 Days of Halloween Challenge, Wicked Blogger!
Thanks for comin' back today! I appreciate all of the wonderful Hoppers! Pick up the Hop at any spot but do make sure you see all the wonderfulness out there! Your Blog Roll is there on the right, Happy Hopping! Right now you are at Kim~Tangled Blue Rose.

Today I have a repurposed fruit jar made into a not so scary Halloween Lantern.
I found these pot jars at Walmart for about $1. The fruit is ok, I really just wanted the jar:)
Emptied and cleaned ofc. The bottom layer is covered with deli wrap painted with various Distress Paints. Then I torn it up once it was dry. I adhered it to the glass with Mod Podge. While that was drying, I stamped the images onto a stretchy gauze bandage with Jet Black Archival Ink. While the Mod Podge was still tacky, I swear it never dries fully(!) I wrapped the glass in the bandage. I used a brush and pressed into the fabric some more Mod Podge.
To light it up for the photos here I just used an LED flashlight. For display I will use an LED tea light that flickers. I don't wanna use a real candle with the Mod Podged paper... and to avoid potential disaster at home.
The intricate stamp looks cool unlit, but.......
The awesome detail gets lost when you light it up, I think simple is a bit better:)
Happy Hoppin'! Don't forget your next stop is found right under Kim at the Neon Skele back at the top:)
Have a spooky day!
