This holiday craft was created by recycling a terra cotta tray and frosted light globe. It would make a great Halloween centerpiece!

Approximate Time: about 25 minutes




  1. Paint the terra cotta tray using black acrylic paint and set aside to dry.
  2. Use a pencil to draw eyes and mouth onto the globe to resemble a ghost.
  3. Fill in these areas with black acrylic paint.
  4. Place a votive candle or battery-powered candle in center of tray, and place globe on top.

Cute idea!! You could also cut the facial features out of black vinyl and then be able to remove them and use the light globe for another craft after halloween.
