Mason jars are used to make candle holders for almost all holidays so why not halloween. The only difference is this one is lined inside with tissue paper instead of painted. The color it is is determined by the paper color. Paint on a spooky face and your done. And you can use any jar not just a mason. So gather them up and see who makes the scarriest. Great for the whole family.
