Happy Halloween Jars With Tealights Using Upcycled Yogurt Jars

Being a blogger is pretty awesome. I get to try new products that sometimes are not even in the stores yet. I get paid to try these new products and tell everyone about them.  Sometimes, these products are not good.  If that’s the case, I tell the company I cannot proceed. I am never dishonest. But, there are times when a product is sooooo good that it becomes a staple in my house and I end up using all of my paycheck to buy said product. Can you guess what product I am referring to?

Let me give you a hint:

I started saving the glass yogurt containers because I knew I could think of a few projects for these cute little pots. I then realized I had an obsession with Oui. (This is NOT a sponsored post, y’all. Yoplait has no idea that I’m doing this.) But if you are a yogurt fan and love to craft, I have got the perfect project for you!

Happy Halloween Jars

The best part about these Halloween jars is that they are able to be saved for year after year decorating!

If you are worried about the sealant or paint being flammable, go ahead and use battery powered tealights.  They still look really gorgeous, especially at dusk!

Happy Halloween Jars with Tealights using upcycled yogurt jars!


  • 14 yogurt jars
  • black spray paint
  • waterproof sealant
  • 14 tealights (candles or battery operated)
  • orange letter stickers


    1. Wash and dry all yogurt jars and remove labels.
    2. Spray paint the outside and rim of each jar with black spray paint. (You can hand paint them all with black craft paint like I did, but it takes much longer.)
    3. Let dry.
    4. Affix letter stickers, one per jar, that spell out “Happy Halloween.”
    5. Spray a waterproof coating on each jar (optional.)
    6. Place a tealight in each jar.

I'm having trouble getting the label off the Oui jars! How did you do it? The end result looks amazing!

@Heather, Soak jar in the hottest water possible for 3-5 minutes and it peels off relatively easy once you pick at a corner.

Thank you! I had the best luck when I just took the label off before I washed it. I ran them through the dishwasher and they seemed harder to take off after that. The black paint covers any residue fairly easy, but I think soaking them in either water or alcohol might help?
