Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and now as the boys are getting older it is becoming so much more fun!! I love putting up decorations and seeing the smiles on their faces. They love this stuff as much as I do! I also love things that are super easy to make and will last for years! That’s exactly what today’s tutorial is all about. This Franken Family of mason jars is stupid simple and it will last forever!
All you need is:
- Mason Jars (Multiple sizes if you want to make a family)
- Green Acrylic Paint and Foam Brushes
- First Aid Gauze
- Black Cardstock Paper
- Glue Stick
- Flameless Votives
This is so simple I’m not going to bother with step by step instructions. Paint the jars, wrap the jars, and stick on the faces. You’ve totally got this. I will give you tips though!
- I bought this Small Band-Aid rolled gauze. First I cut the strip in half length wise and then I stretched it. It makes it curl in a looks better when wrapping.
- Play around with glueing the faces on first and then wrapping. It helps to tuck edges inside the gauze, but it also looks cute if you wrap it first and then glue on the face.
- There is no need to glue the gauze in place. The acrylic glue has a texture when it dries and the gauze will hold itself in place and the gauze I used has a Kling design which helps it stick to itself and stay in place.
- For storing I would probably unwrap everything and stick the pieces inside the jar. Then you can just stick it back on again next year and it won’t get creased or torn.
