Is it a bit too early to be thinking about Halloween? I made this jar a few months ago and have been waiting to share it here.
I used an empty 7 oz Yankee Candle jar and lid that I cleaned out and washed. Does anyone else save these jars with good intentions to give them a second life? I have about a dozen just sitting on top of the pantry that I have a hard time parting with. I always think they will make a great container for a gift of some sorts but they still sit in there. We will be moving next year and I need to use them or drop them in the recycling bin.
I pulled out some super cute My Mind’s Eye patterned paper and tag for this and used a strong adhesive to attach the paper to the jar. I traced the lid onto the black paper and then used a white Uni-Ball Signo pen to hand draw on the spider web. A black pom pom, pipe cleaner and googley eyes quickly became the spider and I attached him with hot glue. I also cut a thin strip of the black paper to go around the edge of the jar and that is also attached with strong adhesive.
Top it off with some bakers twine and a tag and in 20 minutes you have a super cute container ready to fill with a bit of candy and give to a friend.
I am linking up with Tip Junkie’s Tip Me Tuesday for the first time! I love all the creativity that is shared each week and wanted to join in.
