Halloween Candle & Trick or Treat

I'm not much of a Halloween person, I'd rather go straight from summer to Christmas, but I had these 2 glass jars hanging around and they somehow inspired me to create some Halloween decorations.

This one I painted with Fresco paints, a little stamped trick or treat band around the bottom, some ribbon and Stampotique's Uncle Buck is just perfect for Halloween. Pop some sweets in, done.

This one I coloured with alcohol inks, added some ribbon and pumpkins and let 2 tealights melt inside.
Very quick and easy to do, might be a nice project to do with children. The glass jars were from some yoghurts I bought.

Both of these are being entered into a few challenges....
