These luminaries are an easy-peasy, economical, and kid-friendly activity. These are quick to make and I found all of the supplies at my local dollar store.

For, the Jack-O-Lantern luminaries, I decoupaged clipart of faces and orange tissue paper to the inside of mason jars. I used Mod Podge, but I believe Elmer’s glue diluted with water would also work. Simply let your design dry then place a battery-powered tea “candle” in the jar.

The spider web luminary centerpieces are even more simple: wrap webbing around the jars before placing the lights into the jars. Voila!

Food styling requires a critical amount of pure invention and creative problem solving. Check out the ‘skeleton’ that remained after I dismantled a cookie diorama I photographed for Eleni’s New York. Museum wax is a staple in any food-stylist’s kit, but absolutely anything available is fair game when I’m working: here I used fake ice cubes, ramekins, straight pins, a paintbrush, and metal picture hanging hardware to support the cookies.
