Halloween Votives

This is a great last minute project to get the house ready for Halloween or any other holiday. You can make the votives fit into whatever decorating style you desire.

You need some sort of glass containers, paint, paintbrushes, and stickers. I had no glass jars in my recycling bin so I got these glasses at the thrift store for $1.

Each family member drew their design on an address label.

We cut the designs out and carefully placed them on the glasses.

Then we painted around the stickers. This is a perfect project for little kids because it's messy and easy ;)

Painting-in-process.

Let them dry, ours took about an hour.

Carefully remove the stickers and place a candle inside. This is the bat that my husband made.

These are the ones the kids made: a jack-o-lantern and a reverse bat.

And mine, I love the technique at the bottom! Happy Halloween!

What a clever idea! I love crafts the kids can do with just a little instruction and not CONSTANT guidance. This will easily be adaptable for all the holidays. Thanks!
