Halloween is a great time to use your imagination, decorating your home and even yourself for a fun time with friends and family. One way to get creative is by using one of my favorite and most diverse items at the Southport Antique Mall, mason jars. If you’ve been following our newsletter, you’ve seen mason jars be used as vases and centerpieces for weddings, but they are also great for other events and holidays as well.
Using a mason jar (and in this case a glass fish bowl) is a very simple, low maintenance project that will add a bit of fun to your Halloween celebration. And don’t forget, if you aren’t much for Halloween, these projects can easily be transferred to make wonderful fall time decorations for your home! The options are unlimited, but for the purpose of this newsletter, we will focus on Halloween decorations that you and/or your kids can create.
Below are step-by-step instructions for creating your very own ghostly jar that is a perfect replacement for paper luminaries that can be dangerous and wasteful. Instead of those, line your sidewalk with a brightly lit, imaginatively created, safer alternative. Also, see instructions for making your very own fish bowl jack-o-lantern. The mess is less and you have a piece that you and your children can enjoy for years to come.
