Milk jar tea-lights for Halloween

Last year on Halloween, we lit our driveway with these milk-jar tea lights and I didn't get to share it, so posting it again.



My son helped me make some of these. It is that easy to do. Just cut eyes and mouth with black craft paper and stick it on one side of the milk jar. Or you can even use stickers if you can find, to make faces, like we did on some of our jars. Cut a hole on the side opposite to where the face was made.

The hole should be big enough to insert a tea-light and to also put a rock or something heavy inside the jar. The rock will make the jar more stable and not roll away if the night turns out to be windy..




Linking this to these awesome parties here, herehere and here.
