*Halloween Jars*


I came up with a last minute Halloween idea to set the mood. I found these adorable Halloween printables and wanted to use them. I got the chance when the light-bulb went off as I was throwing some glass jars into the recycle. I would modge podge the printables onto the jars. To make them look more festive, I would also spray paint them. So I got out my “Halloween colored” spray paint and painted a couple jars. After they were dry, I cut out the printables and modge podged them onto the glass. I let dry and they were done. I also made a ghost face on one of them using a black sharpie marker. I placed a couple in the guest bathroom and on the kitchen counter-top  These are really cute and you can add tea-lights in them and light them up!
