      @Mom Spark, Can’t wait to try it! Have some old mason jars — would be perfect! I use them for EVERYTHING!

    I love all the ideas, already using the glow stick one for our party. For some reason I cannot see the wine bottle one…maybe I have had too much to drink today already? (Just kidding, haven’t had a drop!)

    I really like the felt wreath. I will have to give that a try this year. I am also planning to make this Witches Welcome Wreath with the guide I found at
