I used DecoArt’s Americana Crystal Gloss Enamel paint and the 3D Gloss Enamel Writers for this project.

    Thank you for your ideas. The Halloween ones would have been a favorite years ago. Now we don’t have enough neighbors with kids to make them. Instead we take a bag of goodies to our little friends a couple days before before and give them out. Saves Mom & Dad from going down our long driveway. However in New Mexico everyone lights their driveways on Christmas Eve to show Jesus where He is welcome. The bags with the sand only last a couple of hours and we find neighbors don’t clean them up till spring.Would like some ides: we thought of the canning jars you use in other projects. Does light really shine through them? Thank you!
