Spooky Candle Holders

Hi Friends,

I hope you are enjoying craft week as much as I am. If you have been following my blog for a while you know the crayon wax technique. It’s relatively easy to create while looking and feeling like something you would splurge on in the store.

I have mason jars hanging around the house and thought I would melt some black crayons on the outside of the jar to create a spooky candle holder or flower vase. Adding the twine and making a noose like handle keeps the spooky Halloween theme alive.

The crafts will be getting more advanced as the week continues, this one is simple, the kids or husband can join in on the fun.
