This isn't really a craft, but last year I carved this pumpkin and everyone who saw it loved it! This year I have been getting asked how I did it and the only thing that was different than carving the usual jack-o-latern was Making sure I made a hole that fit the smaller pumpkin and then carved around thar and that on the teeth of the big pumpkin i used a melon baller to take off the dark orange skin so the teeth were lighter.

This is a very easy and cheap way to get candle holders you will love. Below is an itemized list of supplies as well as a detailed step by step. Enjoy!
Step by Step:
- 3 Jars (you can use any jar you have laying around. I used 2 Ragu jars and one pickle jar)
- Black and white gloss spray paint (Krylon works great!)
- Masking tape
Step by Step:
|Clear your jar off all the labeling. (Goo Gone does an amazing job)|
|Spray paint the jars with white gloss spray paint|
|Rip pieces of masking tape|
|Apply masking tape to the painted white jars|
|It should look like this; make sure|
the ends of the strips are down
|Spray paint black over the white taped jars.|
|Let dry for 2-4 hours (depending on what the spray paint can says)|
Peel off the masking tape!
I might add some black ribbon at the top, but there ya go!
