Easy peasy pumpkin

Today I have a really quick craft that anyone can do.

All you need is a small jar candle (some shade of orange) You can find these at Walmart for $1. Some black paint and a ribbon or scrap of fabric

All you do is paint a simple jack o lanter face on the side of the jar, tie a ribbon or scrap fabric around the top and you're done.


I used puffy paint and just drew the face on by squeezing the paint right from the bottle. You could also use other kinds of paint and brush it on. These aren't the best looking faces but they'll do. I feel bad for the one on the left, his eyes don't even appear to match.

Adorable! And puffy paint won't run or drip like regular, either! Now I'm wondering about other designs, there are lots of possibilities! But pumpkins would be the easiest.

This is a neat little trick. I wouldn't have thought to do it, but I would like to.

I will call the one on the left H. Weinstein!! He's getting ready to make a proposal by winking at us. Sorry, I know the subject of him isn't a good one, but with his name in the news for weeks...I thought of it right away.

Great idea Ann
