Halloween Craft: Spiderweb DIY Candleholders
If you’re looking for something fun to make to decorate your house for Halloween and you want to keep mess and fuss to a minimum? I have got the perfect Halloween craft for you! It’s so easy I almost wished it was a little harder. These came together in minutes!
Supplies you’ll need to make your Candleholders
1. Clear jars in various sizes (stay away from canning jars that have bumpy logos on them. Regular jars from your pantry will work great. So save those pickle jars!)
2. A black permanent marker
3. White paint (kid-safe and toxic-free)
4. a paint brush (sponge ones work best)
That’s it! So easy. You probably already have these supplies and tools on hand.
How to make Spiderweb Candleholders
First make sure your jars are clean and dry. You don’t want any glue/sticky residue leftover from the labels that you have already removed.
Then with your black permanent marker draw a simple spider web on the outside of the jar. This can be done by creating a big star and then adding cross lines in each section around the center. Don’t worry about being symmetrical, spiders can sometimes be sloppy. Add a spider to the middle if you like. You might even want to draw a little ghost like my daughter did, but keep your drawings simple.
When the marker pen is dry, drop a couple drips of white paint into the bottom of each jar. Paint the paint up the inside of your jar until your it is entirely coated. Add more paint as needed.
Once your paint is dry, add battery-operated candles (always the safest) and let them glow spookily!
Isn’t October fun?
