Tea Light Jars~ Witch and Ghosts~BOO!

hi guys AN EARLY HALLOWEEN CRAFT to get you EXCITED FOR HALLOWEEN. (IS IT TO EARLY? NAH!!!!!) I made these last year with my sister!

I got a GIANT jar at Walmart, it was a pickle jar in the bulk section, cleaned out and scrubbed. Then while at the craft store I saw a cute un-finished witch hat at “Roberts Crafts” on clearance. THEN BOOM the idea… SO JOIN ME AND LETS TAKE A LOOK AT THE DIY STEPS……

start with~ wItcH hat, green tissue paper, jar, mod podge, and sponge applicator….
BEFORE~ un-finishedTake and cute tissue paper to size, then mod podged the strips on the OUTSIDE OF GLASS. Lay your strips of tissue paper over the mod podge and then add more mod podge over the tissue paper. Next paint the hat with Acrylic paint (i used a charcoal color) then tear pieces of scrap paper in a Halloween theme, OF Course’!

MOD PODGE AWAY… THEN pick glue off your fingers later… YEAH’ i AM IN kindergarten again! HA! Have your fab. sis draw (or you draw) a witch template and cut it out on black paper, then mod podge the face on too.

hot Glue hat to lid of jar, then glue black paper around the underneath of hat and cut strips from the black paper, for be-witching STRINGY LOOKING hair.

Up close … THE WITCH!

AFTER~ completed~ isn’t she GREAT?, not the witch everyone says she is, she is actually pretty dang friendly, and quiet too! HE HE! i am so PROUD OF MY WICKED WITCH! 😉

Here are my mod podged GHOSTS too!

they are BOTH AFRAID OF THE WITCH, can you tell?  When you are all done you drop your tea lights in them and let them “LIGHT UP” your walk ways or window panes. Nothing like a SPOOKTACULAR FLICKERING HALLOWEEN GLOW!

LASTLY, you can do jack O’ lantern jars too with orange tissue paper, I did those as well! my sis had the idea of MAKING MR. FRANK AS WELL!  save those spaghetti, pickle, applesauce, and baby food jars (for the little babies in the fam.) HAPPY CRAFTING!
p.s. SOME pickles got eaten others got stored in a container 😉
