Quick Candy Gift

Need a quick and easy neighbor gift??  Something fun to give to a teacher??  Looking for a craft to do??  We turned a jar of candy corn into a jack-o-lantern.  Here's how:

First paint mod podge on the back of some traingles that make a jack-o-lantern face.

Stick them on the jar and then coat the whole area with mod podge.  Let dry.
Fill your jar with candy corn - that gives it the orange color for a pumpkin - then top with green or brown fabric and tie it on (I never know if I should put green on top of pumpkins or brown - do you have the same dilemma or am I just crazy...)

That's it - done and done.  Are you ready for Halloween or frantically trying to do a million things in the few days left???

Mandy these are so cute! You are not alone with the green/brown dilemma! I just blogged about some lollipops we decorated yesterday and the hardest part of the project was deciding between green or brown ribbon- I promise!

I would love for you to join us for Craftify It Thursday! Your welcome to link up any of your crafts. I also have you on my blog roll! :D

I always want to put green because I love the contrast with the orange, but real pumpkins have brown stems....yes--it's a dilemma for me too!
