Welcome to our first Mason Jar Monday! The third Monday of every month a group of friends and I will be sharing something Mason Jar related.  This month it’s Halloween Themed Mason Jars.  When you’re all done checking out my Polka Dot and Striped Mason Jars be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post and check out the others.

Halloween Mason Jars painted stripes and polka dots from cupcakesandcrinoline.comIf you know me you know I have a thing for polka dots.  The dots and I are real tight 😉 I have polka dot pajamas, polka dot slippers and I’m considering buying some polka dot shoes.  It’s a bit of an obsession and I think I’ll blame my mother for it – she was Polish and used to polka dance and since I’m not much of a dancer (hide the children if I ever dance in front of you-they’ll have nightmares) I have subconsciously chosen the second best polka there is that being in the form of a dot.  That’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.  Halloween Polka Dot Mason Jar vase from cupcakesandcrinoline.com

I made these mason jars the same way I painted my crazy spring polka dot jars (you can find the full tutorial here).  For the striped jar I used Frog Tape to mark where I wanted the lines but I didn’t snug it up tight enough (I didn’t want to pull the white paint below off) and I had some leakage.  I’m going to try a few different techniques and when I figure out a way to do this WITHOUT any paint overrun I’ll update this post! BooI had a lot of fun decorating the Mason Jars.  I used a BOO banner from the scrapbooking department for the vase jar and placed an inexpensive bunch of faux flowers inside.Striped Halloween Mason JarFor the striped mason jar I wrapped a battery-operated tea light wrapped with washi tape and placed a painted papier mache pumpkin on the top (I carved out the bottom to allow for the candle light to show through).SpiderI also had some fun making a pom pom spider, gluing some glow-in-the-dark googly eyes onto his little head and placed him atop the orange mason jar with black polka dots.Pumpkin on headMy youngest son had some fun placing a papier mache pumpkin on top of the spider…. Spider Close Up
