$1 Store Saturday: Mini Recycled Tea Light Jack-O-Lantern & Pumpkin Man Treats

These Mini Light-Up Jack-O-Lanterns are a fun way to recycle the pumpkin topper from a Dollar Tree tube of candy corn. It stands about 2 1/2" tall and is a fun decoration to tuck anywhere in the house (hello tiered tray:@) This is a cute little project that, with the right tools, comes together pretty quickly. I love that the tealight gives it a fun, Halloweeny glow. 

 I started with the candy and some battery operated tealights.

The pumpkin topper.
I wasn't expecting the stopper to be that long and didn't think it would be closed on the bottom.
 He's laughing at me because this turned into a more involved project than anticipated...

I used my sturdy shears and kept running them around (scoring) the stopper until I could cut it off.
Bloggy Buddy Sandi suggested a coping saw for this...
But I did get the last laugh after all😉
 

Trim the bottom as evenly as possible and hot glue or super glue to the tealight.
 
From here, you could leave as is or embellish as desired.
I added a little harlequin washi tape and sparkly purple diamond mesh bling😎

Oh, and yes, it's the perfect size for Barbie play too-gotta love that!
Barbie says she's ready for trick-or-treaters now🕷️

And you can see how I made these silly Pumpkin Man Party Favors from Dollar Tree items HERE
They come together in no time, and make great treats or even a cute party craft for the kids. 

 Make something just for fun and have a Happy Halloween Season🎃
