Hey Lovelies! Today I have a cute craft for you to make for Halloween! It’s easy to assemble and make, so you can make a lot or just for a quick last minute deco thing! I made a Spooky Jar for you. Of course you can make it how you want, but this one is to give you a idea of what you could do. Most of the materials that are used can be either found for free in nature or you have them already at your house. I hope you will enjoy this tutorial! Somehow I wanna make a few more, but where to put them all? Haha.
For this DIY you’ll need:
♥ A Clean Jar, check if you can recycle any.
♥ Decoration for in the jar, think of moss, acorns, branches etc.
♥ Glitter (optional).
♥ Few Tissues.
♥ Small Ball. (I used stuffing, but you could also use paper or more tissues).
♥ Sewing Thread and Needle.
♥ Paint and Brushes.
♥ Glue (optional).
♥ Fairy Lights (optional).
♥ Tutorial Spooky Jar
Make sure your jar is clean and dry. If your lid is a color you don’t like, paint it in a color you like and let this dry well.
At the top of the jar, you could add some paint as well, I used a bit of white mixed with some glue. You could leave the glue out though, but I didn’t want the white paint to be too opaque. Dap the paint on, messily around the top. You could do a bit at the bottom as well, but I didn’t do so. Let this dry as well.
Now let’s add the decoration in the jar. You could use glue, but I didn’t find it necessary. Add anything you like, but if you have something to cover the bottom of the jar, like moss, add that first. And then add anything you like. At the end, when I was happy with how it looked, I sprinkled a bit of glitter over it. When you add lights, it will give that little extra.
Take your little ball and your tissues. It depends on the size of your jar on how big you wanna make it, so just adjust it to what you work with. Place to pieces of the tissues on top of each other, make sure the middle of it lines up but the points aren’t. place your ball in the middle and wrap the tissues around it. Use a bit of thread to keep it together. With some black paint you can add a little face to your ghost.
With a big needle poke some thread through. This way you can hang it from the lid with some tape.
Now if you want you can add some lights to the jar as well, I like it both, with or without. But since it’s spooky season, I prefer to add lights!
Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you next week.
