Illuminated Jack-O-Lantern from Dollar Store Recycled Pumpkin Candy Container for Barbie -DIY

This light-up Jack-O-Lantern is a fun way to recycle the pumpkin topper from a Dollar Tree tube of candy corn. I love that the scale of the pumpkin is perfect for Barbie:) 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😎

 ♻Let's recycle creatively and have a Happy Halloween Season🎃

  1. Fun idea, I'm goin to have to make some! can use a coping saw on smaller pieces of plastic. Sometimes on harder plastic the dremel, melts it before it cuts!
