Feeling Halloween Crafty

It isn't too often that I see a craft that interests me enough to want to actually make it. When I came across these, I knew it was perfect for me, it looked inexpensive, easy, fast and cute! I am thinking of all the different holidays and seasons it would be fun to make one for. I found it here.


I turned these:
Into this:
and my mom turned them into this:
Where I found my supplies:

candlesticks - Michaels, 2.99 each
round base - any craft store, .50
letters - Hobby Lobby, .99 each
Glass Jar - Hobby Lobby, 2.99 each
Finial - .99 each or knob - bag full for 2 dollars or so at any ol' craft store
ribbon - any craft store, about 2 dollars
paint - my paint bin, free

(about 20 dollars to make all three and just over a half hour. I didn't have any coupons or sales and was not patient enough to wait for them, you could do it for quite a bit less if you did.)

I used hot glue for all parts excepts to adhere the glass onto the
candle stick and then I used super glue GEL.

  1. You are so creative. I bet you made them for less than if you bought the already made ones. They really are adorable.

  24. Some girlfriends and I are getting ready to host a craft night for other friends. We went to Michael's to buy supplies for this craft. For some reason, we weren't able to purchase the same items for only $20. We all averaged over $40 in the purchase! Not sure what we did wrong, but we are still going to make the jars! They are adorable, and we are going to get letters and ribbon to use these throughout several seasons.Thanks for the idea!
