"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

Candy Corn Jar Lamp


  • Americana Acrylics
    • DA134 - Yellow Green (transparent)

    • DA197 - Violet Haze

  • Brushes - Loew-Cornell - #3 Round; #4 Shader; 1/4 Deerfoot
  • Brush basin
  • Palette
  • Paper towels
  • Water
  • Graphite & tracing paper
  • Pencil, stylus
  • Scotch tape
  • Scissors
  • Shady Lady lamp shade glue
  • 3" bulb clip wire
  • Sharpie Ultra Fine Point Permanent marker
  • Shady Lady Zinc Mason Jar Lamp
  • 40-watt bulb
  • Candy corn
  • 6" Arc Shady Lamp
  • Lampshade Paper, White
  • Pattern



  1. Transfer the pattern, according to these directions: Using a light box or a window, place on pattern front. Line up precut arc and with a permanent marker trace faces on.

    Hint: If using a window, use two pieces of scotch tape to hold pattern up.
  2. Turn precut arc over and line up pattern back. Trace on ghost outlines and lettering.

Painting Instructions

  1. Faces: Use #3 round brush to paint ghost pupils Lamp Black, highlighted with a 'C' stroke and a dot of Titanium White.
  2. Paint noses in solid with Violet Haze and #3 round brush.
  3. With Deerfoot brush, stipple on Violet Haze cheeks.
  4. The face with the tongue sticking out and the one with the 'O' shaped lips are painted Yellow Green using #4 flat brush.
  5. On the back of the shade using the wooden end of the brush, dot all letters with Lamp Black.

Finishing Instructions

  1. To form back seam, overlap and match up scallops on straight edge. Spread bead of glue, making sure glue comes to the edge of the paper so the seam will seal. Line up two back scallops and hold until glue is set.

    Hint: Once seam is lined up, lay shade flat on table, on the seam side and lightly press so edge becomes sealed.
  2. Turn shade upside down for gluing wire in place. Hold 3" bulb clip wire in position and put a bead of glue around wire where it is touching shade. Press lightly so you don't bend top scallops. Let dry.
  3. Fill jar with candy corn. Put lamp together and clip on shade.

Awesome since this is my pattern. You can purchase the lamp shade arc to make this shade and many more at

Part of the above instructions are for the ghost figures and then the last section is correctly for the candy corn lamp. Hope to see it corrected because I have always wanted to change a vase or jar into a lamp. Warm regards, Susan
