Last-Minute crafting is kind of my thing. I think it's because I always have way too many ideas floating around in my head, so I am making and creating right up until the holiday gets here. If you are like me, you'll love my 10 Minute Halloween Mason Jar Luminaries.

How to Make 10 Minutes Halloween Luminaries:
To begin the Halloween Mason Jar Luminaries, gather all supplies. Oly-Fun® is a non-woven fabric that cuts like paper, so it is perfect for holiday and party decorating, costumes, kids’ projects, and activities. You can sew it, glue it, staple it, pin it, or tie it. You can write on it, paint it, embellish it, stamp it, or stencil it. Oly-Fun® can be cut with scissors, a rotary cutter, or a die-cutting machine. Freehand cut 12 strips approximately one inch wide from the Snow White, Kiwi, and Orange Crush Oly-Fun material.
To create the Mummy Luminary, tie the first strip of Snow White Oly-Fun around the neck of the mason jar, then tie on the next strip with a double knot. Start wrapping the strips around the mason jar, securing as you go with Zots Clear Adhesive Dots from Therm-O-Web. I started out using a glue gun and glue sticks, but it left a wet-looking spot on the Oly-Fun material, so I switched to the Zots Medium and they work perfectly. Continue to tie and attach the strips of Oly-Fun, covering the entire mason jar. Attach the wiggle eyes to the front of the mason jar with Zots, tucking them underneath one of the strips.
To create the Jack-O-Lantern Luminary, attach a strip of Orange Crush Oly-Fun to the inside of the neck of the mason jar with a Zot Clear Adhesive Dot, loop around the bottom, and then back up and around, securing inside the neck of the jar on the opposite side. Continue working around the jar until it is covered. Tie a few strips of Kiwi Oly-Fun around the top of the jar. Attach two wiggle eyes to the jar with Zots. Cut out a Jack-O-Lantern mouth from Jet Black Oly-Fun and attach it with Zots.
To create the Frankenstein Luminary, attach a strip of Kiwi Oly-Fun to the inside of the neck of the mason jar with a Zot Clear Adhesive Dot, loop around the bottom, and then back up and around, securing inside the neck of the jar on the opposite side. Continue working around the jar until it is covered. Cut a two-inch-wide strip of Jet Black Oly-Fun that will wrap around the neck of the jar twice. Fringe the long edge with scissors and secure around the top of the jar with Zots. Attach two wiggle eyes to the jar with Zots Clear Adhesive Dots. Cut out a skinny rectangle eyebrow, a jagged mouth, and a scar from Jet Black Oly-Fun. Using Zots, place the eyebrow, scar, and mouth on the jar to finish Frankenstein's face.
Open the bag of Glasslets by Fairfield™ and pour approximately two inches in each mason jar luminary. Replace the lid on the easy-open pour spout and save the rest for another project. Poly-fil® Glasslets are tiny glass microbeads perfect for weighted blankets, home decor, and sensory items. The small 100% glass microbeads are about the size of a grain of sand, perfect for luminaries. To finish the Halloween Mason Jar Luminaries, place a BATTERY OPERATED tea light in each jar.
Place a BATTERY OPERATED TEA LIGHT in each luminary. NOTE: DO NOT USE A REAL FLAME CANDLE.
