|Netting and creepy cloth and Gorilla glue|
|I started experimenting with handles. Sticks and wire covered in glue. The Hook jar is coat hanger wire covered in paper towels and glue.|
|The ladle handle Jar|
|I think the Hook Jar is my favorite. It can hang on branches or even door knobs|
|Good as a character prop|

So When I was a kid I would make soup can lanterns to hang in the tree house. They were awesome! I cut an opening in a can and placed it inside the tiki. Zip ties and glue mache hold it together. These two are large enough to hold pillar candles. I know witches and pirates didn't have soup cans around but when they start to rust they look good. They are also easier to light.

So I am always getting inspired by Pumpkinrot as many home haunters do. When I saw the torch in Swamp Feotus I wanted to try try my hand at converting a witch jar to a tiki. I keep them outside all year and when it rained alot in the summer they would fill up. So I made hats/roofs out of aluminum pie pans. I coated them with some model railroad scenic turf to look like moss. There is something cool about tikis staying lit in a downpour.
