I love to reuse my spaghetti sauce jars to create these beautiful pumpkin lights for All Hallow’s Eve! You can use different size jars to make a spooktacular display!
Orange tissue paper
Black construction paper
Green acrylic paint
Optional: other things to decorate, a hammer and nail to punch holes in the lid if you want to use the lid but light the candle inside.
Tear orange tissue paper and place glue in an easy to use container. You will be applying the tissue and glue with one hand and the other will be inside the jar.
If your hand is small enough, insert your non-dominant hand inside the jar and then use the other hand to coat the jar with decoupage glue. Lay the strips of orange paper over the jar. Glue and place the paper until the entire surface is covered. Go over the entire surface of the jar with one more thin layer of glue.
Allow to dry for a few hours. In the mean time, create your face with the black paper. When the orange layer is completely dry, glue the black paper on and decorate as you wish.
If you want, you can either paint the lip of the jar green for the stem or punch holes in the jar lid and paint that green. Either works fine!
When the jack o’lantern is completely dry (give it 24 hours after the last coat of glue) place a candle inside and light or place electric lights inside and plug in! Either one gives the pumpkin a lovely glow!
Looking for a creepy little craft? These spooky spiders are the perfect complement to your family’s Halloween party or your home décor. In orange and black, these little arachnids are sure to make fright night more festive and fun. Get creative and use other colors as well!
Small pony beads
Pipe cleaners (black and orange)
1. For each spider, gather four pipe cleaners in a bunch. Bend the bunch in half and then tightly twist the section near the fold several times to shape a slender spider body.
2. Separate the pipe cleaner ends to create the spider’s legs.
3. Slide a couple of beads onto each leg and push them up close to the body. Then bend each leg an inch from the body and slide a couple more beads up to the joint. Bend the legs again to create a second set of joints about 1 1/2 inches from first and slide on the final pairs of beads.
