|The jack-o-lantern was made by my friends boyfriend, think he looks more scared than scary!|
Now I don't usually do Halloween as I'm not a fan of dressing up so this was something a little different and it turned out to be an amazing evening! We watched some classic spooky movies, Hocus Pocus and The Craft, really took me back to sleepovers as a teenager! If you doing something tonight or just out trick or treating with the kids have a fab time and watch out for witches! x
1/ Collect empty jars of all shapes and sizes just make sure a tealight will fit though the opening.
2/ Stick a length of masking tape to a cutting mat and with a craft knife cut simple triangle shapes for eyes and toothy mouths. I did two of each design to stick to the front and back of the jar.
3/ Carefully peel off the masking tape and stick to your jar making sure it's stuck down with no loose edges.
4/ Now outside (or a very well ventilated room) use a glass etching/frosting spray to completely cover the jars, I did two thin coats. Take care not to get spray in the jars as it's obviously flammable which won't mix with the candles later!
5/ Once dry remove the masking tape carefully and decorated with ribbons, twine, buttons, whatever you like!
6/ I found that lighting the tealight and carefully dropping it in the jar was the best way to get the candle lit, unless you have super long matches or taper lighter.
Done! Now sit back and enjoy their little spooky faces!x
