I am an admitted Pinterest addict, in fact I can spend huge chunks of time on there just pinning away. I am now making an effort to actually make many of the things I pinned, which is probably just my way of justifying my time wasting skills. Back in the summer, I saw this pin for these Halloween Jars (you can find the tutorial here)
I immediately knew I wanted to do this, however I soon found that my Hobby Lobby and Pat Catans no longer carry the unfinished wood candlesticks. I did not take a picture of the candlesticks before, however I they looked like they do now, just not painted:) I wanted to spray the lids of the jars, however I have been sick and we have also had rain, neither of which are helpful for spraying. So, I will either spray the lids black this week or they can easily be done for next year. Here is what my BOO jars look like
I realized after the fact that I forgot to buy the round pieces for under the candlesticks, and those are necessary I can now tell. The jars are currently top heavy so I will need to pick up three of those. I also chose to use my Silhouette to cut vinyl letters. I am still on the hunt for unfinished finials for the top of the jars, I haven't found what I am looking for yet.
Overall I am very happy with these and I think I will make another set for Christmas. It is a very inexpensive project and so easy.
