Art Activity: "stained glass" lanterns
Here is a project I was planning for Christmas/Hanukkah, which slipped through the cracks, so we finally got to it just now. I bought a bunch of plastic mason-style jars which we used for various gifts, and wanted to try making colorful lanterns out of them. We used a mix of equal parts Elmer's glue and water to create a substance similar to Modge-Podge, which we spread all over the outside of the jars. Then we stuck on pre-cut squares of colored tissue paper, followed by more glue.
