Easy DIY Mason Jar Ghost Luminaries

How cute are these super easy DIY mason jar ghost luminaries I made for Halloween last year? They looked so cute lining the walkway up to our front door … until it started raining and I had to bring them in. There is no rain in the forecast this year so I’m hoping they can stay out all night!

If you want to make your own, trust me when I say they are so simple!

  • White or ivory lace
  • Black duct tape (sheets of tape are easiest)
  • Clear Mason jars
  • Scissors
  • Clear tape
  • Battery operated tea lights

Easy DIY Mason Jar Ghost Luminaries


Step 1 – Cut out a piece of white or ivory lace to wrap around your mason jar. Once you have the correct size, use that piece of lace as a template to cut out however many you need. Secure the lace to the jar with a piece of clear tape

Step 2 – Use the scissors to cut out round pieces from the black duct tape. Each mason jar should have two smaller pieces for the eyes and one larger piece for the mouth. If the tape has protective backing, remove the backing and stick the tape to the mason jar.

Step 3 – Place a battery operated tealight or votive candle in each mason jar.

And you’re done! I told you it was easy! Display these little guys (or ghouls) wherever you desire.

  1. Holiday decor is always so expensive when it’s store bought. This is such a cute and inexpensive project and you were right it is simple! Great job. I hope these ghoulish jars have fun lining your rain-free walkway this year. 🙂
