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!

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.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • A horribly blurry picture that pretty much sums up our week together. It's been 5 days and our home is nearly flu-free. Dada is off working in a different province, (smiles aside) Remy is not happy with me today, our house is a renovation disaster, and I have a photography session scheduled tomorrow that I'm not yet sure if I need to hire a babysitter for. I'm not going to lie, I'm really looking forward to this week being over with. It was not easy, however that's life. There is so much that I do have to be thankful for! We are in good health 99% of the time. My husband finally has a great job. I am lucky to be able to work when I want at what I want. We have a house. Most importantly, I have my little goose to snuggle with. I sincerely hope that if anyone else is having a bad day/week/month/year, that you can also find the silver lining. Our own life is not for everyone, nor is it Instagram perfect. If we're lucky, it is the one that we desire, even in the difficult times. Enjoy your weekend! Thank goodness for breastfeeding. My darling caught her first flu yesterday. I tried giving her bland foods and drinks all day- she wouldn't touch them. Then I tried her favourites- still nothing. Instead, all she wanted to do was nurse round the clock. That is how we spent the majority of the day- nursing, bathing, cuddling, barfing, repeating.
My goal was to breastfeed Remy until she was 18 months old. After that I had no plans. As she is nearing month 19 earthside, I've discovered that she has no intention of stopping. 
On the rare occasions when she's sick, I'm reminded of why we have kept it up for this long, and why we keep on going. I'm almost certain that she would've become dehydrated yesterday if it wasn't for me nursing her. So although fed is best, the breast is truly a gift.
