I’m starting today with something super easy to create – Halloween Decoration Jars!
I have so many Halloween decorations these days that I either can’t put them all out, or I have to find ways of displaying them by using minimal space. The way I do that is to put smaller decorations into clear jars or containers and have them set out around the house.
I’ll start with jar number one, filled with glitter balls and pumpkins. I bought these in Michaels craft store when I was out in Orlando this summer, but if you can’t access this store (I’m looking at us non-Americans!) then you could easily replicate this with foil covered chocolates or even Christmas baubles! So many shops in the UK sell Halloween decorations these days, you are bound to find something you could use.
All I did was layer the glitter balls by colour and place the pumpkins on the top – simple, easy and I love it!
Jar number two is filled with glass beads. Again, I bought these in Michaels craft store and they came with these cute flat glass ghosts as well as bones and eyeballs. There is no reason why you couldn’t buy some clear glass beads and paint on a ghostly face to make a feature of a jar of beads. This sort of display could also double up as somewhere to poke the sticks of cake pops into for a Halloween party buffet.
Finally, jar number three is from last year (a lot of my decorations are still in storage after our house move!) but I wanted to share it, as this shows how you really can just throw a bunch of stuff in jars and use as a decoration! I have two fish bowl jars, the bottom one was filled with a Halloween kitty ball, and the top one with lots of different spooky bits that I have – confetti, skeleton pieces, springy toys etc. I then stacked the fish bowls and another easy decoration was created!
So, there you have it, Halloween Decoration Jars – they can be as subtle or as wild as you want them to be! I’m sure I’ll be creating a few more jars before October is out, I’ll show you mine if you show me yours! You can do so at my month long Halloween Link Party. Celebrate Crafty October with me….I would love for you to share your Halloween ideas – crafts, recipes, costumes, parties…as long as it is family friendly! It’s my favourite time of year, (as you may well know) and I can’t wait to see what you link up!
