Pumpkin Candleholders

A friend told me about this simple craft idea and it was the perfect activity for Jude yesterday.

Clean and dry a glass jar.  Cut the face of a jack-o-lantern out of masking tape or painters tape and place on the jar.  Paint the entire jar orange.  (He did a great job covering the whole jar...I was actually impressed!  I think we need to use a larger jar next time to occupy more time!) 

Let dry completely.  Peel the tape off the jar.  Light a candle and stick inside.

Happy Halloween!
