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

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.

I would highly recommend to use a $1 solar light from the Dollar Store. Some kid is bound to grab the globe, and start a big howl, if the globe is heated by a candle.
If you can't afford a solar light, glue sugar cube size rocks at the bottom of the globe to ensure plenty of air flow to cool the globe.

If you use a solar light, you can use wax paper instead of a glass globe.
