I love to upcycle. A few years ago I decided to transform old pasta, peanut butter and yeast jars into cute Halloween Jack-o-lanterns.
I tucked tiny battery-operated tealight candles in the jars, and now they illuminate my fireplace mantle.
Now, I love to craft, but it has to be easy and fast. I just don’t have the time or patience for a long drawn out project. So, I’d say this took about 30 minutes to make, since the jars were already washed and dry.
- Use painter’s tape to create faces or write words on the jars.
- Go outside and place the jars upside down over garden stakes or sticks poked into the ground.
- Spray each jar with orange spray paint. Let dry.
- Peel away the painter’s tape, fill with candles and enjoy!
That’s really all there is to it! I plan to make a few more jars this year to add to my growing collection. Have you made a similar project? I’d love to hear about it or see some photos! Please comment below with your Facebook account.
Until next time,
