A strip of burlap, some twine, some cute number plates that I found in the scrapbooking section at Michaels, a votive candle, an empty jar, a pair of scissors, some Tacky Glue, and a handful of candy corn and I was in business. This is so quick and easy to do.
Here’s how I did it:
I took a piece of twin about 60 inches long and dabbed a dot of Tacky Glue on one end and attached it to the jar. I held my finger on it as I wound the twine around the top of the jar. Then I did the same with the second piece to fill in any gaps left by the first piece. The twine covers up the top of the jar where the grooves are for the lid. Then I cut a scrap of burlap and glued it around the center of the jar. I threaded my number plate with a piece of twine and tied it around the jar on top of the burlap. I got lucky with the numbers and there was a “31” for Halloween. Although a lucky “13”would have been nice too.
I filled the bottom of the jar with some candy corn and added a votive candle. Then I scratched a match stick across the Trick or Treat Matchbox and lit the candle. That’s it! Easy!
