I hope this Halloween week has been fantastically spooky! I keep watching scary movies and giving myself nightmares!
I have one more Jar Project for Halloween. The recycled Jar Pumpkin Candle Holder! This project is super simple!
What you need:
- A Jar
- Some Paint – Acrylic works really well
- Mod Podge- optional
- green string or ribbon
- battery candle
Add just a few drops of the paint and Mod Podge to the jar. I used a bit of ink spray but it just to brighten the color.
Then put the cap on, and shake and swirl. You may have to do this a few times while it dries to get the right amount of paint around it. I wanted it a little clear and streaky so i just let it dry as is. but you can keep coating until its nice and consistent.
Once done with the paint, flip the jar upside down on a plate or stack of old newspapers so the excess paint has somewhere to go. Let dry.
I drew the face on with sharpie while the cap was on and I was swirling the paint around, but you can certainly wait until its dry. I did intend to Mod Podge the eyes nose and mouth with a fine brush then add black glitter, I was just too busy.
After everything is dry, add a bit of glue or Mod Podge to the very top of the jar and add either string or ribbon for a more finished look.
Once that is dry, add your battery candle and enjoy!!
