Just when I thought the blogging and crafting world had exhausted every way a mason jar can be used for Halloween crafts … my daughter handed me this brilliant idea. Zombie mason jars!
I was washing off some acrylic paint from a jar in the kitchen sink and my daughter commented that it looked like a zombie the way the paint was peeling away from the jar. And then that got me thinking …
… why not create some cute Zombie mason jars for Halloween?
I started by painting the interiors of the jars with red acrylic paint.
Let them dry upside down so any extra paint can drip out.
Then I gave the exteriors a coat of Zombie gray (just making up that paint color name; it’s just gray acrylic paint).
The I pulled out the sandpaper and started ‘peeling’ away some of the gray to expose the red.
I added some google eyes.
And they were cute enough just like that. But I decided to add a few bandages.
And voila! Zombie mason jars.
Aren’t they just too cute?
I like to think of this next shot as my “Walking Dead” zombie jars …
Now go forth and make your very own Zombie Mason Jars!
