DLTK's Crafts for Kids:
candle holderJack-O'Lantern Votive Candle Holder Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

My oldest daughter has recently started Sparks (part of the Girl Guides of Canada movement).  One of the first crafts she brought home was this one.  Make sure you talk about fire safety and safety with matches when you make this craft!

"My Sunday School class will be making the "Jack-O'Lantern Votive Candle Holder Craft--with a big change--as we are so concerned about fire we can no longer make anything with candles, etc.  So we will be making these like you did--but I'll be filling them with Halloween candy they can take home and share with their parents and friends.  Also, we'll be putting ripped green paper around the sides and tops of the baby food cover to look like a stem.  I will be making out labels with a Bible saying on it for kids to put on back of pumpkin jar.  I'm sure that my kids will love this idea."
