If you are hosting a Halloween party this year or just even want a fun decoration for your house, try this Easy Dollar Store Glowing Pumpkin Craft.

I was at the dollar store the other day and saw these cute little glass candle holders.  I am more of a candle that comes in a jar kind of person, so I knew I would never use the candle holders to burn candles in.  That left me wondering what I could do with them and then the light bulb went off. I knew I could make a fun glowing pumpkin craft with some orange twinkle lights. I grabbed some black craft paper and ended up making this Easy Dollar Store Glowing Pumpkin Craft with my supplies.  I am absolutely in love with how it came out and it literally only took me about three minutes to put it together.
