Craft #1- Halloween Painted Jar Luminaries

I found this super cute idea that was pinned from www.craftsbyamanda.com. This is an easy DIY craft that you can do with your kids. All you have to do is get a clear jar, paint the outside a color of your choice and then put a face on it with black paint. You can illuminate them at night with a battery power LED light or a candle! Super cute and way too easy!
