I'm linking up to these parties!
What about some that are half or almost empty that you can hurry and empty, and wash out?
How are you all?
Well I have a confession to make, I've always been more about the cutsie Halloween decor,
NOT the scary stuff, but last year for an Enrichment Meeting a cute friend showed us how to decorate for cheap!
She said that Halloween is her most favorite holiday to decorate for! When I saw all the cute ideas she shared, I was hooked.
So, have you been saving your jars?
Do you have any laying around?
You might want to look around because..
I'm going to show you how I made my Halloween-y, Spooky jar!
-A pickle jar
-Black Paint (spray/craft)
-Dish with warm water
-Some eyes from the dollar store
I used the font PegsannaHMK found HERE. Typed Out "Eyes of Newt" I used a webdings skull and added that too. I printed it out on just white printer paper. I tore the paper and crinkled it up into a ball, undid it... I put my tea bag in the glass dish of warm water and waited just a couple minutes. (I have wanted to try this!)
I put the paper into the dish and let it stay in for 10 minutes. I let it dry for about 1 hour.
While it was drying I added the eyes to the jar, and painted the lid with 2 coats of craft paint.
Then I put a thin layer of mod podge onto the side I wanted to stick to the glass, stuck it on, and I wanted it to look a little wrinkly so I didn't smooth it out.
When it was all dry (about 5 more minutes) I added another thin layer of mod podge to the top of the label.
I tied some jute into knots and wrapped it around the neck of the jar(under the lid) and called it good! I Like how it turned out...What do you think?
I'll show you how I made my Macbeth Plaque and Magic Spell Book tomorrow,
and then how it all looks on my Mantel! AND I'll have some great links to share!
