Halloween Jars

It’s almost here… HALLOWEEN!!!! I love this Holiday! There are so many fun decorations that you can add to your holiday d├ęcor! 

This last weekend my dear friend and I got all crafty on some Caning/Storage Jars. These are super simple, cheap and perfect for Halloween night or your fabulous PARTA!!

I used standard medium size and small size Mason Canning Jars that I had on hand. But you get a little more funky by buying various shapes jars to jazz these babies up.


Supplies:
·      Variety Tissues Paper
·      Scissors
·      Modge Podge and Sponge paint brush
·      Black construction paper:

And begin…

First …

Cut your strips of each issues paper. The pumpkin will have thinner strips, the mummy will have a variety of skinny and wide strips. *With the mummy strips use a stamp pad to “dirty it up” to give it that mummy look.

Secondly…

With each Jar you’ll slap down some good ol’ Modge Podge on each jar, lay down your tissue paper and then repeat again with the Modge Podge on top of the issue. 

After you’ve had a Modge Podge party with your Jars let them COMPELTELY dry!


 Thirdly….
It’s time to get creative….  Cut out the faces  (yummy, pumpkin, ghost, mummy and Dracula.) with using your black construction paper.  I’ll be honest I’m pretty much awesome (sarcasm) at everything but this wasn’t my cup of hot coco. But in the end it didn’t matter. They still turned out adorable! Plop some, Ikea cheap-o-candles into those spooky thangs and look what you’ve made…..







Enjoy!
