Happy Halloween! It’s a day my son has been waiting for for a long time, and he’s even declared today the best day of his life – and the party hasn’t even started yet! Oh, to be five!
I haven’t got much time as we’re getting ready to entertain a group of his school friends this evening, but thought I’d share with you a super easy, last minute craft idea for Halloween. Last minute is what I’m all about, so this one is perfect for me.
You need some jam jars, bandages, googly eyes, a bit of glue and tea lights. Hands up who went to Ikea in the 90s, bought a bag of tea lights for £1, and is still using up the same bag?
We found out it’s cheaper to buy jars of pickled onions than it is to buy the empty jars, so this morning had the task of emptying six jars of onions and rinsing out the containers. Nice job at 8am! When they’re dry, you just tape one end of the bandage to the jar, wrap a length around, and tuck it in.
Stick the eyes on with glue, pop in the lights and you’re ready to go. We’re going to put them up the path after dark. Right, better go finish this pumpkin. Have fun!
