Candy Mason Jars Make Great Halloween Gifts

download (7)This next week as October begins we can finally say the Halloween season has begun, which will thrill a whole lot of people who have already been decorating since the middle of September.  It seems as though many of the same people who complain each year that the Christmas decorations are out far too soon in the stores are the same ones who are more than happy to see Halloween decorations out weeks and weeks in advance. In short, a bunch of folks LOVE Halloween. And we’re all constantly looking for new fun and easy DIY projects to celebrate the season.


Many people who garden in the summertime find their shelves full of mason jars in the fall. And even if you don’t have a green thumb, you’ll find the stores are full of those canning jars this time of year. Mason jars have so many wonderful uses when it comes to decking out the house for halloween. One really easy way to turn a Mason jar into a Halloween jar full of treats is to make it into a jack-o-lantern jar. Simply cut out the shapes for a jack-o-lantern face – eyes, nose and mouth, and stick them to the outside of the jar with Mod Podge. Then coat the outside of the jar with Mod Podge to keep the paper from peeling off and let it dry. Fill the jars with candy corn and top with some green fabric, held on by brown yarn to symbolize the top of the jack-o-lantern. These adorable jars make great gifts for teachers, neighbors, anyone who loves Halloween!
