It's a Matter Of ....... A Little Halloween!

I have a few little goblins that will toddle through my house this year....and I love it!  I have always decorated and celebrated every holiday in my home.  I wanted my children to have fun and fond memories of our time together over the years.  

Now, I have another generation that I would 'spread the fun around' with.  So, I have plans for our party this year, and I would like to share some of the fun things that I will have at that family gathering.

Halloween Jack-o-Lantern Jars....from Canning jars and Vinyl Cut-outs.  

Well, if you have been reading my blog for any time at all, you know that I can lots of different things. As such, I have jars...and jars...and jars in my storage room.  I decided to try a little project this year.

I cut out some fun faces using my Silhouette.  I put them on to transfer paper.  I then cut the individual faces apart.

I found a smooth side to my jar and rubbed the design/transfer paper on to the jar.

I initially had the plain jar and put in a flame-less candle.  You know the ones that are sold at Christmas time. They work just great for these, and little hands can be curious and not get burned if they try to touch them.

I decided to put on some raffia for fun!

Aren't they sweet?  I think all the little Goblins will love them when we 'party-hardy"....(well as much as you can with a 3-year old and younger party!).

Take Home Message:

  • I had all the materials to do this project.  I had the Vinyl from another project. The cost for me today was just my time.
  • The Canning Jars are from my storage...again I had these items on hand.
  • I used flame-less candles for safety.  I had used these candles in my Christmas decorating. They are perfect for this little project.

Simple, Easy, Cute, and Fun!  Who can ask for anything more?
