DIY recycled Valentine's lantern

We love doing recycled crafts and at Halloween we made these super easy and fun Ghost/pumpkin lanterns. "J" still has these out to light and loves them. So the other night I asked him if he would like to make a Valentine's lantern and he was excited.

So I picked up some fun Valentine's tissue paper at Target in the dollar section and we made them.

Baby food jar (glass)
Tissue paper
Mod Podge
Foam paint brush
Tea light candle or I use the fake tea lights so the kids can put them on and off.

Then just layer using the mod podge and let it dry. This is a great craft to do with kids. After it is dry you light them or put the fake candle in the jar and let them turn it on for a candle light dinner or even a fun bath (see picture below).

We did a fun bath. I decorated the bath all up for Valentine's using our stuff from our Valentine's counting bath and made it a candle light bath. The kids loved it.

We are having so much fun doing all these fun Valentine's Day crafts and play, be sure to check back for more fun things we come up with.
