Just a quickie

Threw together a couple of lanterns for my yard today.

Pretty simple, really. Just a couple of old jars I dug out of my neighbors garage (with her permission, of course.) I left the inside as dirty as I found them, but wiped the outside so I could dust them with pumpkin orange paint. I wrapped some fine steel wire around the top & twisted it so I could loop handles made from a wire clothes hangers through. I extended the hanger wire over the top & fastened one of the little clip on LED lights from Jacks tool shed. I didn't use the clip - I just taped the light to the wire.

Not sure yet how I'll display them. Thinking about a couple of pumpkin sentinels. Not much time to play...
