Halloween: the light

This is the easiest craft ever.  All you need are:
  • clean, empty food jars
  • glass paints
  • black felt
  • garden wire
First paint the entire jar in the chosen colours.  Let the paint dry for at least 24 hours.

Cut some themed shapes out of black felt.  We have a witch, two bats, and two jack-o-lantern faces.

Stick the felt shapes to the jars.

Cut some garden wires to use as handles.  There you have it!

They look pretty when they are lit up.  Just drop a tealight candle into each glass.

Hope everyone in the east coast of the US is staying safe!

  2. This looks like a lot of fun and I'm beginning to think how these would be fun to do with a winter/Christmas theme as well. Thanks for sharing the pictures and instructions.
    P.S. I found you via Homegrown Learner's Collage Friday link-up.
