    It's now officially summer? How did I miss that? Maybe because I've been calling it that for the last few months. 🙊 Oh well, happy 5th-ish day of summer, all. 🌸 A typical afternoon for my gal.

halloween : candy + candle holder diy

Halloween Candy and Candle Holder DIYHalloween is by far my favourite season of the year. I am drawn to all things paranormal and terrifying, so for the entire month of October, my supernatural internal pistons are firing on all cylinders. This season, I wanted to increase the number of DIYs posts that I normally publish. The great thing about today’s project, is that it is really two crafts in one. Each pumpkin jar can serve as its own candy-filled treat, or you can simply remove their lids and place tea lights in their bellies. I personally prefer the latter. So, here is the first craft of the season!

Halloween Candy and Candle Holder DIY - 1Pumpkin Candy or Candle Holders:

Jam jars

Cork board
Foam brushes

Crazy glue
Candy or candles

Halloween Candy and Candle Holder DIY - 2Steps

1. Using a foam brush and orange paint, cover the exterior of the glass jars. Let dry. (If you are making candle holders, skip to step 4.)

2. Next paint the lids green. 

3. Cut the cork into small rectangular pieces. Cover in brown paint.
