After making waterless snow globes for Christmas over the last few years I thought it would be fun to make something similar for Halloween. For some reason everything looks classier in a glass jar to me. These Halloween Jars took under 1/2 hour to come together by using a few random supplies that can be picked up at your local craft store or even big box store.
glass jars (kitchen cabinet)
small witches hats (craft store)
small brooms (craft store)
small bats (craft store)
shredded black paper (walmart)
pumpkin ornaments (target)
black glitter tape (michaels)
For the small jar- Start by filling the lid with the black shredded paper. Over fill it a little so it stays fluffy when the hat is placed on it.
Place one of the witch hats on top and screw the jar onto the lid. Adhere the black glitter tape around the jar lid to finish it off.
For the medium jar- Tape fishing line to the back of the bats. These bats are plastic but you could make your own out of black scrap book paper. Fold the wings to add dimension.
Fill the bottom of the jar with black shredded paper then place the broom across the top of the jar. Tie the fishing line around the broom so the bats are hanging at different lengths in the jar. Secure one bat to the outside of the jar with double sided tape.
For the large jar- Fill the bottom of the jar with the black shredded paper. Add the witch hat, broom, and pumpkin to the inside of the jar. Use double sided tape or glue dots to secure the bat to the inside of the jar.
Place the jars on candlesticks or something else to elevate them and place them on different levels.
You can make the Halloween Jars into a cute centerpiece by arranging them inside a tray. I added one of the Tea Light Holders I made and topped it with 2 more pumpkin ornaments to give the scene a little more interest. Isn’t everything just so much cuter in jars?
I’m happy with how these Halloween Jars turned out and they look pretty awesome in the green tray. They would also look great decorating a mantel or a book case. I might have to make a version of these for every holiday now.
