Eek! Witchy Jars

Ready to see my newest Halloween decor addition?!

Eek! Witchy Jars at artsyfartsymama.com #Halloween

This turned out even better than I expected. Plus everything was incredibly inexpensive, and it only took about 30 minutes!! Sounds like the perfect craft combination, in my opinion.

Eek! Witchy Jars
Supplies:
Glue Gun
Glittery Scrapbook Alphabet Stickers
Pledge Floor Finish - After much searching, I eventually found some at a smaller Walmart (the larger ones didn't have it... weird)
4 Glass Jars
Fine Green Glitter
4 Plastic Witch Hats (found at Hobby Lobby)

Step 1: Wash the jars out & dry thoroughly. Try not to get any lint or dust inside of it, or the floor finish may not stick. Pour a small amount of finish in the jar and slowly swirl it around the jar. Don't shake it up or it may get bubbles. Keep swirling the finish around and tilt the jar to completely coat the inside of the jar. Then pour the excess finish back into the container.

Step 2: Next, pour some glitter into the jar. A finer glitter may coat better, but regular glitter works fine, too. Swirl & tilt the jar slowly like you did with the finish to cover the inside with glitter. You can pour out the excess glitter back into the container, but DO NOT tap the jar. I did on the first one and the glitter looked a little sparse in some areas. So just don't do it, okay?

Step 3: Set the jars aside to dry. You can finish the project while they are drying, just be careful not to tap them or touch the inside. The finish shouldn't run or anything, and it dries clear.

Step 4: I didn't wait that long for them to dry. Put some hot glue around the top edge of the glass and then placed the glittery witch hat on top. Easy as that! E6000 Glue would also work great.

Step 5: Next, place some glittery scrapbook stickers onto the jars. You can also use vinyl, marker or anything else that you want. You don't even have to spell something, my original idea was to draw a witch face...but in the end, I decided "EEK!" was the one for me!

And that's IT! Super easy, super inexpensive and super versatile!
...and not to mention it goes *perfectly* with my Halloween wreath!!

  29. I am wondering if this would work with a plastic/acrylic type ball or does it have to be glass to get the floor finish to stick? Glass decorations are a hazard in our house :) Thanks!
