This easy to make Tea Light Jack-O-Lantern DIY is the perfect Halloween craft to add some extra spooky lighting and decor to your home!
We're heading into my favorite time of the year! October thru December are my three favorite months of the year and it all starts with Halloween! I don't know what it is, but ever since I was a little kid, I've LOVED Halloween. My hope is that Lily loves it even half as much as I do. Otherwise, she'll be forced to enjoy it anyway because we go all out in this house! ;)
We put up our Halloween decor last weekend and I realized that one thing we didn't have a lot of was lighted decor. I wanted to change that since we love to have Halloween movie nights all throughout October so I came up with this super easy tea light jack-o-lantern DIY! These are really fun and simple to put together so you can make a ton to go in every room of your house!
