This is a very simple craft project that I recently made. You will need:
A pickle jar (or any type of large jar)
Acrylic paint in black and orange
An empty thread spool
Fabric ribbon (optional)
A small set of Christmas lights (mine I took out of my Christmas village)
When your jar is washed and dried well, take your sponge and dip it in the orange paint, then blot it off on a peice of newspaper before you start sponging it on the glass. Make sure you cover the glass totally with the orange paint but you don't want it on too thick or the lights will not show through as well. Allow to dry.
Glue the empty spool to the top center of the jar lid. Paint the jar lid and spool black with a brush. When orange paint is dry, paint on face in black. When jar is completely dry tie ribbon around neck of jar. Put your lights inside (if the cord is small enough the lid will still fit on, if not, you may have to make a hole in the lid to put the lights through.
