Mason Jar Jack-o-latern

I found this adorable craft idea from ourbestbites.com and it is easy enough for the kids to help.


Mason Jars, any size

Tissue paper

Mod Podge

Paint Brush


Ribbon or paint for the tops (explained below)

Start by cutting your tissue paper into strips about 1-2 inches wide. Brush a thin layer of mod podge on the glass jar and stick a strip of tissue to it.


Take more mod podge and brush on top of it, sealing it onto the jar.  Place your jar upside down to dry. 

As your jars are drying, work on your faces. Cut out faces from black paper and use a glue stick to glue them onto the jars. Wait until modpodge is dry before gluing on the faces. I also tried attaching them just with mod podge and they didn’t stay. Our Best Bites used guidline available from Not So Idle Hands for the silly monster faces.  You probably could cut out faces from a coloring book or stencils from the dollar store.

For the tops you can use paint to paint around the rims, or you can do what I did and attach a piece of ribbon.
