Halloween is coming up soon so I'm sharing these Halloween treat jars that I made for my little boy's teachers last year.
I used Jif Hazelnut spread jars that I
hoarded saved for projects such as these. I peeled off the label and scrubbed it to remove the adhesive marks on it.
Then I measured the height of the inside of the jar, and cut my orange card stock paper according to the measurements.
Next, I rolled up the cardstock and inserted it into the jar.
Since the upper part of the jar is narrower than the lower portion, it kind of helps keep the paper in place. But you can also secure it with scotch tape if you want.
For the pumpkin face I used my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine to cut black vinyl. But you can also
cut black cardstock paper with scissors and use double sided tape to adhere it to the jar.
For the jar lid, I used the Silhouette machine again to cut the orange cardstock in a circle shape, and black
cardstock for the word boo! and also for the bat shape. Then I used Elmer's spray adhesive to adhere them to the lid. Next, I applied a coat of Mod Podge on the lid with a foam brush and waited for it to dry.
The last thing I did was put some candies inside the jar and I'm done! They turned out pretty cute, don't you think?
