Mason Jar Pumpkin Candle Holders

Yah Halloween! One of my favorite times of the year! Halloween is such a big event in my life, that in my “younger” days, I used to stay up till like 3am in the morning working on my costume during the weeks before Halloween! Now, x-amount of years later, with two little ones, I have to divvy up my time a little differently… Being a new blogger, I recently realized that I don’t have any Halloween posts… a HUGE fail! So last week I managed to find a little time to do a little Halloween crafting.
Crafty has two meanings in my books… 1. Being super creative in an artsy way, and 2. Being super creative in a money-saving way! Therefore, I decided to head out to one of my favorite stores to gather my supplies – The Dollar Store!
After checking out the wine glass section of the dollar store, I decided that these gorgeous mason jar wine glasses would make really cute pumpkins!

For some reason, I have this really weird obsession, where I have to mix my own paint colors for everything… even my dining room and office wall colors! Once I made the color that I was happy with, I started applying a base coat to all of my mason jar glasses.
The nice thing about these is that you can leave the lid off if you want to use real candles or tea-lights… Don't forget to click the link below to find out how you can make your very own Mason Jar Pumpkin Candle Holders!

    These are absolutely adorable! Did you shade the sides a bit darker than the faces or is that just a trick of the light?

    did you clue the wine glasses to the candleholders? what type of glue did you use? did you have to sand the candleholder first to make it stick? Thanks!
