Where have I been, you ask? I have been trying to remove labels from my food jars so I could make these darling Jack O'Lanterns!
All I can say is some of the adhesives used on food jars do not want to release the labels. Hot water and elbow grease is my preferred method of removal, but geesh! It takes a heck of a lot of work. It's almost scary...
This is the simple shape face. Darling, isn't he?
The paper I used to cover the jars is also recycled from a kitchen item I received from last Christmas! I saved it because it was these huge pieces of perfect orange and finally I found the perfect use!
And the black paper pieces are scraps from another project! I love it!
I'm going to place my pumpkin spice tea lights in them and place them in the window so maybe we'll get a few trick or treaters this year...
This recycling trick is a real treat!
