Halloween Mason Jars Craft

Halloween Mason JarsIt’s official…I’m in love with creating mason jar crafts! I think I love mason jars so much because there are about a million different ways to decorate them. The secret to mason jar crafting is in how you prep them…it makes all the difference. I’ll tell you my secret mason jar craft weapon down below under the supplies for these fun Halloween mason jars.

Halloween Mason Jars Directions

Here is how to make the three different Halloween mason jar designs I created.

Witches Legs Jar:Halloween Mason Jars

  1. Spray your mason jar with a white, flat paint primer. Place jar mouth down on a piece of cardboard outside and spray evenly. You might need two coats of primer, but it dries very quickly.
  2. Lightly sketch your design onto the jar using a pencil.
  3. Paint the large details, like the skirt, using acrylic paint.
  4. For the other details (including the shoes), I used paint markers from this regular colored set and the light purple from this set. As well as this gold paint marker for the shoes. I like paint markers because they are very easy to control compared to a paint brush and they make it easy to create crisp lines.Halloween Mason JarsHalloween Mason JarsHalloween Mason JarsHalloween Mason Jars

Bride of Frankenstein Mason Jar:

Halloween Mason JarsI did this jar a little backwards since at first I thought I was going to create Frankenstein instead of the bride of Frankenstein. But I’ll tell you below how I would recommend creating the jar!

  1. Start with primed jar using this white, flat paint primer. Place jar mouth down on a piece of cardboard outside and spray evenly. You might need two coats of primer, but it dries very quickly.
  2. You DO NOT need to paint the entire jar green!! Just paint the face green using acrylic paint (and yes, I know that the bride of Frankenstein didn’t have a green face, but I took a little creative freedom).
  3. For the eyes, use white, gray and black paint markers. And a red paint marker for the lips.
  4. Paint the hair with black and white acrylic paint.

Black Cat Mason Jar:

  1. Start with primed jar using this white, flat paint primer. Place jar mouth down on a piece of cardboard outside and spray evenly. You might need two coats of primer, but it dries very quickly.
  2. Lightly sketch the outline of the cat face onto the jar.
  3. Paint the background with purple acrylic paint and the cat with black acrylic paint.
  4. Using paint markers, add details to the cat: whiskers, nose, and eyes.
  5. Using paint markers, draw a little cute spider hanging down over the cat.  Halloween Mason JarsHalloween Mason Jars
