Step 1: Clean the glass jars and remove the labels
The jars need to be clean for the paint to adhere well. Remove the handle and unscrew the rim and remove the tea light holder. Wash them with soap and water and remove any sticky labels on the bottom. I hate those labels. Just once I would love one to come off cleanly.
The label did not come off easily but I did manage to get it done.
Step 2: Paint the glass jars
Rustoleum Paprika spray paint is my color of choice for this project. I just love it. It looks just like fall and Halloween to me.
I opted not to paint the rim part and the handle because I thought the orange and black were perfect for Halloween but could also be used for fall decor as well.
Step 3: Sand the raised ridges on the glass jar
Use a sanding block to sand all of the raised edges. You can sand as much or as little you want. This will create a great look for the tea lights to shine through.
I think it turned out really cute.
Step 4: Finishing up
Once you are happy with the sanding, screw the lid and tea light holder back on and replace the handle if you want to. Then add the tea lights.
They just look so cute. Especially with my new Halloween village set.
It is obviously not to scale with the Halloween village but I still like them together.
What do you guys think?
For such an easy and budget friendly (cheap) project they are super cute and I think they resemble a pumpkin. Don’t you?
