Moroccan jar lantern

by vargajudit

Moroccan jar lanterns are one of the things I planned to do about two years ago. I just never had the time or the motivation. But when we finished a jar of raspberry jam, the form of the jar seemed to be perfect to make a lantern. So… I did 🙂


All you need is contour paint that you can use on glass and one colour/jar. I chose gold for contouring and teal blue. The motives I chose remind me of oriental art, even though I did not do a deep research on the subject – so, it is mostly my imagination, but I am quite content with the results. And this being a repurposing type of project – that only adds to it.

This was the picture that inspired me to do this project:
