Reusing Jars Part One: Halloween “Candles”

So we ended up with about ten of these adorable jars after a family member’s wedding in October. The brides had used them to package some delicious frosted pecans to give out as favors, and we managed to snag a couple extras. We ate them all almost immediately and were then left with the empty jars to reuse.

I have a final plan for these cuties, but in the meantime, I put them to use as non-flammable candles for a family Halloween party using some electric tea lights, a bit of spider webbing and some plastic insects and rodents. They were easy to make, safe to have around kids and pets, and set the mood well. Best of all, I can use the jars again for the final project, which may or may not have to do with holiday gifts. Either way, I’ll post their next incarnation here.
