I just LOVE these halloween mason jars.

 

Why? They were EASY to make, my KIDS could help and they are CUTE, CUTE, CUTE! Today I'm going to share the steps you can follow to make your own.

1. GATHER SUPPLIES

 

2. PREP THE AREA

Because of the way you'll paint the jars, it's critcial you have laid out an area with cardboard or newspaper on the ground to catch paint during the painting process.

 

3. PAINT THE JARS

I found the easiest way to get a smooth finish without brush marks is to just squeeze A LOT of paint into the bottom of the mason jar. My kids LOVED this part.

 

Then, tip the mason jar over (this is the reason you'll want a nicely prepped area) and swirl it in your hand so the paint starts to drip down on the sides of the mason jar. Keep slowly turning and swirling the jar until all of the sides are covered. 

 

Once the sides are all covered, just leave in on the newspaper to dry.

4. DRAW ON THE FACE!

Using your Sharpie Paint Marker, you can either freehand draw on the face like I did or you can print our a template if you want it to be more exact.
