We’re going to a spooky Halloween party in the park tonight so I spent some time making these Halloween votives to guide us as we scoff our Horror Mix jellies and Tiffin. I got the idea over at Skip to My Lou, a great little crafting blog.
They’re so easy to make. All you need are some old preserving jars, some orange tissue paper, glue and a black pen. And possibly some garden twine to make a handle too. The paper is glued to the outside and once it’s dry you draw a face on it. Then when you put a tealight inside it glows like a pumpkin.
Of course there’s no substitute for the real thing and just to be on the safe side under-gardener has spent the best part of today carving a Storm Trooper’s face into a pumpkin. Each to their own, as they say, each to their own. What are you doing for Halloween?
