I love adore fall. It’s that time of year where everything is full of gorgeous colors, smells and the weather is absolutely gorgeous. Because this time of year is so amazing, finding things that inspire me is a breeze. You can take simple materials you find in your home and help bring fall fun to your home or office.  Thankfully many of the crafts you can make are as simple as my Easy Fall Lantern Tutorial below. All you need is a little creativity and in this case some Extreme Fade Resistant Sharpie Markers.

What you’ll need:

A mason Jar (a set of 3 will make this project even funner!)

Sharpie Extreme Fade Resistant Markers

Tissue Paper (Assorted fall colors)

LED String lights *


This is a very simple project to complete and all you really need is a steady hand to draw some fun faces on your mason jar. You can go with some ghosts, scarecrows or even a fun pumpkin. Best of all there’s no mess involved,just easy to create fun.


Once you’ve drawn on the face cut out a piece of tissue paper and place inside mason jar creating a reservoir inside so all the sides are covered with tissue paper. sharpiemason

Add the LED Lights (I suggest buying a pack of these battery powered lights).sharpiemason9

And you’re ready to light up the Fall nights. Best of all it takes minutes to create making this a fun family craft or idea to for a fun fall gathering. sharpiemason2  Thanks to Sharpie your pictures won’t fade and you’ll have a fun creation that will last you years to come. sharpiemason1

    These are awesome! We have decided not to put out pumpkins since many have been broken in our neighborhood already. This is an awesome alternative and gives me a good use of my jam jars that are empty! Thank you!
