Chic Halloween Glowing Jars

 I’m not really one for creepy crawlers, scary eyeballs, or dead-looking things as Halloween decorations for my home, but I do love to have an excuse to change my decor and dress up like someone else for a day. 😉

This year I made a fun, glowing Halloween jar that adds a beautiful, little ambiance to my evenings.

It’s amazingly easy…and I know you’ll want to make one too…

So, here is what you need:

Chic Halloween Glowing Jars

  •  a jar with a flat exterior {I saved a spaghetti jar}
  • a candle
  •  some rice
  •  some tracing paper
  • these printables:

Print these Halloween wrappers on tracing paper {it is the thin paper that you can see through – although, the thicker version is better on your printer. I like to use the ones you find in a notebook instead of a roll.}. 😉

Cut them out and use double sided tape to apply it to the jar, or feel free to modge podge it…I just had a feeling a might want to switch out the banner for different holidays.

Add some rice and a battery operated candle {or a real candle, but those are hard to light in a skinny jar}…

…and that’s it! Awesome, huh! 😉

I have loved having it on my entertainment center with the pretend light flickering in the evenings.

I also plan to make a few more and place one on each stair going to my front door for when those little ghost, goblins, princesses, and parents come trick-or-treating at my door…

Or maybe I will cluster them amongst some pumpkins or jack-o-lanterns…

Or maybe I will line them up on a window seal…

Or maybe I will wrap a bunch of different type of jars and cluster them all together…

Okay, these are just too much fun…Good thing they’re so cheap and easy!
