I’m not terribly crafty, but boy am I crazy for Mason jars. My mother in law gives my husband and myself canned goods often and after we’ve eaten the contents of the jars I’m anxious to find a new purpose for the containers. There are tons of Halloween-themed projects for Mason jars out there so I’ve compiled a few for you fellow Mason jar enthusiasts:
Okay, I admit this particular project is one that I recently wrote up for Goodwill of Northern New England’s blog. It’s an easy project that (with the exception of the paint) uses materials you likely have around the house. Even better, it’s relatively quick to create so if you need something to light the way for trick or treaters up to your front door you can make these rather quickly.
I can’t get over the cuteness of this Mason jar project. I’m not usually a big fan of googley eyes but when they’re put in gauze on this little pint sized jar I can’t help but think it’s adorable. You can find the instructions this little Mummy Mason Jar over on celebrations.com by clicking the picture below. (There is also an equally cute pumpkin Mason jar project on the site!)
I’ve been interested in glass etching lately thanks to a cute literal DIY toast etching project on Offbeat Bride but I don’t yet fully trust my ability to create a clean etched design. That’s why I was pleased to discover this tutorial from Every Creative Endeavor that creates the look of etching with little to no chance of messing up the design. Instead of using etching cream this project calls for clear matte spray paint to imitate the look of etched glass. Click the picture of the finished project below to be taken to the instructions.
What’s your favorite project you’ve ever done with Mason jars?
