What’s the Project? These cute little Halloween mason jars are not only a cute decoration for Halloween, but they make a great craft project as well! Fill them with candy or fun treats and they make a fun Halloween gift as well.
Well I love Halloween and I love glitter and I love candy and this project brings all three of those together, so it’s just about perfection!
I did Christmas candy jars and Easter candy jars in the past, so now I’ve got cute little Halloween mason jars. A Jack-o-Lantern, a ghost and Frankenstein that make a great craft or cute little gift or just a fun Halloween project!
Cute little guys, right?! And I filled them with candy corn so what could be better? (Where are my candy corn lovers at?!)
They’re pretty easy to make and could be a great Halloween kid’s craft if you want.

Little Halloween Mason Jars:
- Small Jars-you can use baby food jars or you can get little jars at the craft store
- Fine glitter in green, orange and white
- Googly eyes
- Black cardstock
- Craft glue or decoupage
- Foam paintbrush
- Hot Glue
Take off the lid. Cover your jar in a layer of your glue or decoupage.
Sprinkle glitter all over the jar and set aside to dry.
While the glitter layer dries, cut mouths or hair from black cardstock.
Once your jar is dry, hot glue the eyes and cardstock pieces on.
Here’s a video tutorial of the process if you want to see how to make it.
Pretty simple to make right? Definitely kid friendly.
Then fill with candy and enjoy!
I hope you love making these cute Halloween mason jars and have a very Happy Halloween!
