Day #8: Halloween Luminary Tree


Hi there - I'm Jen from Tatertots & Jello.
I love Halloween luminaries and thought it might be fun to make a Luminary Tree. This is a fun and easy project that creates a welcoming glow for a party or for the big 
Trick-or-Treat night!

Start off with a case of jelly jars. I found mine at Walmart.

Get a few different kinds of Halloween-colored candy. I found mine at the Dollar Store.
Grab some ribbon.
Add a dab of hot glue on each side of the top and attach ribbon across the top of the jar to make a handle.
Add a dab of Gorilla Glue at the very top of the jar. This will make the bond extra strong.

Wrap ribbon around the top of the jar and secure with hot glue.

Add the candy and some candles.

Cut down a branch and put it in the pot. Then add some Dollar Store crows.

Light up the candles.
Thank you Kirsti for letting me come by!
I just love these 13 Days of Halloween. So much fun!

xoxo
