Halloween is coming fast and it's my favorite time of the year here in Minnesota. The leaves turn beautiful shades of fall and the air is crisp. I love jeans and sweatshirt weather!
I started with a trip to my mom's basement for miscellaneous bottles and jars (she's a pack rat).
Goodwill and garage sales contributed a few bottles to the collection as well.
I dipped each container in soy wax that was slightly tinted yellow/orange. I imagine paraffin would work as well but I didn't have any on hand and it may have been too opaque.
Next, I spray painted any of the lids that looked too shiny and new. Then I burned around the edges of my labels and glued them on. Many of the labels I simply created on the computer using super cool fonts, but some came from a scan of web images. Some people are generous enough to share some.
I tossed in the little battery powered candle tea lights to make them glow from within.
They all looked awesome sitting together on a shelf all light up.
My son delighted in turning all the tea lights on and off inside all of them.
