- Small Glass Jars - remember that heavy jars may be hard to carry. (Baby food jars?)
- Strong Twine or Fine Wire - to make the handle tightly wrap the twine around the lip and leave a nice loop.
- Glow Sticks or Electric Tea Lights or Candles (Do you dare?)
- Tissue Paper & Glue or Modge Podge - can give it a great stained glass look.
Other options and things that can also be used to decorate the jar:
- Sheets of Vellum - color on them with Sharpies and slip them inside around the edges of the jar.
- Colored Sharpie Markers - can be used to color vellum or even right on the glass. If you want them to color on the glass you can make it more permanent by putting them in the over for about 30 min.
- Aluminum Foil - to make small silver stars to attach to the outside.
- Ribbon - to tie around the lip.
- Doilies - can be colored, cut and glued strategically to look like lace.
- Black paper can be used to create a silhouette of a manger or an angel.
Just imagine all the little kidlets carrying their lanterns as they process in with the choir. They could walk all the way in and out with their lanterns or there could be a special place where they put them up front as amazing creative decorations. They'll look like a bunch of twinkling stars if displayed creatively.
