Easy and Cheap Pumpkin Craft

So on Sunday I posted about all the goodies I got from Hobby Lobby and my awesome black feather Halloween wreath.  So today I am going to post my little pumpkins.
We used glass jelly jars and a pickle jar.  I save them all the time because I have created so much with them from the time I used chalk board paint to the time that I painted a peanut jar.
We are trying to be as green as we can be and what else was I going to do with all these jars?!
So with these jars we used Mod Podge and orange tissue paper.  We did one layer all over and allowed them to dry.  I then used a Sharpie to draw jack o’lantern faces on them and added tea light candles. 
Wah lah!  Easy, cheap Halloween pumpkin craft!

Yep...I have been saving my baby food jars to do this project this weekend with my mom. I will have to share mine next week. I saw these another blog and thought how easy and cheap and something Lexi can enjoy doing with me. I also bought some green and white tissue paper.

Love yours also.
