Halloween Glass Jar Candles! (HOW TO)


These were so fun and easy to make!
They are my favorite Halloween craft so far.

::All You Need Is::
Glue (Mod Podge is a best friend of mine)
Clear Jar (I always save glass spaghetti jars for times like these)
Gift/ Tissue Paper (I used Orange, Green & Silver)
Black Permanent Marker
Scissors
Paint Brush
Candle

::And Here's How You Do It::

Measure the tissue paper to fit your jar.
Without applying any glue, first make sure the amount you cut fits your jar.
Use your paint brush to apply your glue- a light (even) coat will work just fine.
(apply it to where ever you will be putting the paper.)
Wrap your paper around the jar, while smoothing it down.
Be careful not to tear the tissue paper- when it gets wet it rips easy.
(It's alright to have some lines- I think it builds character.)
If any of the tissue paper is not secure,
use the glue and your paint brush to lightly go back over the area.
Once it's dry, you can start drawing with your marker.
You could do faces, words, pictures whatever you like.
Place the candle inside,
and you're all done! :D
