Halloween Illuminaries Project

I'm hosting a big Halloween party this year (more on that later) and using it as an excuse to get crazy crafty. So, you've seen the awesome owl wings costume. Here's another little up-cycling project that cost me ZERO dollars.

1. Start with salsa and pickle jars. I've been collecting these for the last few weeks. (We eat a lot of salsa.)

2. Paint them a base color. I choose acrylic paint from the kids' craft set, in white and green. Let them dry completely. (If you'd rather glue, get out some crepe paper in similar, spooky colors and glue to your hearts content.)

3. Paint ghostly and Frankenstein faces on the glasses, drop candles inside and ... viola! ... fun and almost FREE Halloween luminaries! 

Done - Ghostly and Free!
