Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Easy Halloween Luminaries

For these super easy to make luminaries, you will need:
  • A glass jar. I used a spaghetti jar. (Make sure you wash the jar out and remove the labels.)
  • Thumb tack/push pin
  • Aluminium foil
  • Cardboard
  • Clear tape
  • Tea candle

1. Cut a piece of foil to your desired height and length. I liked a little of the jar
    showing at the top and bottom, so I cut a smaller piece of foil.
2. Lay the foil on the piece of cardboard. Try not to wrinkle the foil.
3. Use your push pin to create the design. I have a few stencils below if you
   need ideas.

4. Carefully peel the foil off of the cardboard.
5. Place around the jar and tape at the back.
6. Insert tea candle or votive candle, light, and enjoy!

NOTE: The glass jars can get hot, so keep away from little hands!
