Bat Wings, Eye of Newt....Halloween Home Decor Project

Halloween is always a lot of fun don't you think?! Do you like spells and potions? Bat wings and Eye of Newt? Need some apothecary jars to put some yummies in? Well look no farther than your kitchen and the dollar store! 

Hi everyone, Brenda here of Friends Craftin with Friends and I'm here to show you how you take recycle old glass food jars, candle jars, etc...into cool apothecary jars. You will need clean jars with lids, some old candle sticks-wooden or glass. I used glass ones that I bought at the dollar store. My jars are a jelly jar, a candle jar and a yeast jar. The smallest, brown jar is the yeast jar and the tallest is the candle jar. I took some black spray paint and spray painted my jar lids and candle sticks black. While they were drying I took some dies and cut out labels that I distressed with Walnut distress ink, then using Cardz TV stamps Halloween stamps: "Frankly Frightful and "Oct. 31st", I stamped my titles on the labels. Glued some homemade enamel dots on the labels and then attached to my clean jars. I used E6000 to glue the jar to the candle sticks. I didn't have any finials to use on my jar lids, so I used what I had and that was some old painted spools. I put some orange paper in the middle of the spools, then added a white pearl on top of the spool and glued the works down on the lids with E6000. Added my candy and called it done! They look really cute grouped together in my bay window. A nice cheap decoration for Halloween. I hope you like this little project and maybe will make some for yourself. They are really easy to make which is always a bonus and you have a cute decoration too! Crafty hugs, Brenda
