Mason Jar Jack-O-Lantern

Sherri Osborn
Follow these directions and you can create a fun pumpkin candy jar. All you need is a jar, some paint, tissue paper, and orange candy.

  • Age Guideline: 6 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

You can use whatever sized mason jar you want. Use the black paint to make a jack-o-lantern face on the jar. Fill the jar with the orange candies and then put on the lid.

Cut a piece of green tissue paper long enough to wrap around the top of the lid and overlap an inch or two; it should be about 5-inches tall. Fold up one of the long edges to get a smooth edge. Wrap the tissue paper around the jar lid so it covers the lid completely. Gather the top of the tissue paper and tie with a 12-inch piece of curling ribbon. Use the sides of the scissors to curl the ends of the ribbon.

For a little variety you can use green felt or fabric instead of green tissue paper. If you do not want to paint on your mason jars you can cut the facial features out of construction paper. You can then attach them on the inside of the jar using clear tape.
