Wee Memories Challenge: Halloween sponsored by Paper Smooches

Please scroll down for Operation Julie’s Smile Post!

Happy Saturday everyone! You made it thru the week!!!! We have a fun challenge in store for you today over at the Wee Memories blog! HALLOWEEN! You can make anything you want. Card, altered item, decoration, etc…… My project is a little different from the norm because my 5 year old son made it!!!! Have a look.

It’s kind of hidden in this picture, isn’t it… Here is a closer look:

We took some jars (one was a spaghetti sauce jar I cleaned out and the other two were mason jars I picked up from Michaels for under $2 a piece). We painted the INSIDE of the jars and then painted BOO on the outside…. We put tea candles in the inside and at night, we burn them. It’s pretty cool looking. This is an indoor decoration. Β Here is all we used for this project:

I hope you like it! Be sure to head on over to the Wee Memories blog and check out what the rest of the design team made!
